Synchronize a Tiki Forum with a (Mailman) Mailinglist
a) Forum outbound email (Regression)
In Tiki 11 it was observed that Tiki cannot send emails out from a forum post to a mailinglist. This problem might be produced by Zend/composer. This is a regression. It works in Tiki9.5 (not clear about Tiki10). More Info:
b) Forum inbound email (Error)
In Tiki 9.5 it was observed that postings from a mailinglist are shown in Forum with wrong author sometimes. Users of Forum and Mailinglist are not necessarily identical. Some users are registered at forum and mailinglist, and they are recognized by Tiki via email address correctly. Every now and then (no clear pattern yet) an inbound email from mailinglist is registered in the forum with wrong username and wrong email, apparently random chosen by someone else who wrote earlier to the list and was listed in the forum with his post.
In addition Tiki Forum breaks threading if the email topic is changed. This might be intentional and due to lack of internal handling of emails' Message-Id header.
c) Tiki Forum header (Wishlist)
Tiki recognizes whether an inbound email was sent by forum or not. This is done by a header. This header should be up to configuration, because it is not possible to connect two different Tiki forums with one mailinglist.
d) Demo and Showcase
Unfortunately it is not possible to construct a showcase easily, because the setup of Tiki plus Mailman is quite complex (spam protection would require an isolated setup which cannot spam real world) and the pattern seems to be dependent on race conditions.

Unable to connect to show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is currently under maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Unable to get information from show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
