You may want to have a look at a help script I wrote to make a

distribution file.

I am attempting to setup your script, and am unclear about the
following three items. Your help is appreciated.

$mbox = $mhonarc.'/mbox/demo';

## Path to resource file

Unclear? In what way? I take for granted that you understand that the

That presupposes that the path to the program is:


So, this example setting:

     ## Path to mbox file
     $mbox = $mhonarc.'/mbox/demo';

suggests the creation of a subdirectory to the program directory:


and the creation of an (empty) file in that directory named 'demo'.

I don't know what else to say. You need to be much more specific about
what it is you are "unclear" about.

I have is regarding maillist.html file:

## Full URL to main index file
$indexURL = '';

Is this file created automatically or do I need to create it? I installed
the application using 'perl' ...

I am also getting an error " did not return a true value" when
adding messages - (pass:

Your help is very much appreciated.
