Mail config turns out to be hellishly complex on the server, so there may be limited help we can provide – not due to lack of desire, but simply because we don’t know how to do it ourselves.[/quote]
I was about to say it depends on your library support, but then I remembered it’s ruby and I’ve got no idea what the relevant libs are like with that. Most of the people who’ve ranted at me about ruby in the past are also anti-email, but that says sod all, it could just mean the ruby devs who know how email works are also polite.
My own queries along this line, though deals with to what extent MIME is supported and, even more eclecticly, PGP/MIME? Yeah, edge cases, I know, but I’m considering this route as a better option than a mailing list for an author’s mailing list (a client, can’t say who, shouldn’t matter anyway). He wants a mailing list, his wife thinks a forum, I suspect this will keep them both happy (the MIME question is for them and their HTML email habits, the PGP/MIME question is my own curiosity).
