PHPbb/I2PBote Compatibility

Post by DogeDollars »

This isn't a huge issue, just a little thing I noticed. :)

PHPbb doesn't allow emails that are very long, (like I2PBote emails) emails that are not structured like a 'normal' email, (eg. Username@Domain.com) and I2Pforum doesn't send emails over I2PBote.

Solutions:
-Enable the SMTP port in I2PBote (after installing it) and have PHPbb send emails to 127.0.0.1:7661
-Write an extension that changes what counts as a valid email during registration. (As far as I know, this can't be done in normal settings. It must be done with an extension)

hi

yes, phpBB does only allow regulary email addresses following the RFC. Will need deeper changes to allow other formats.

I2PBote is a good idea, also needs deeper changes to the underlying system. Worth a try, but won´t happen soon.
