This product requires a recent version the python email module to be installed. It is a standard module in python since 2.2. Older python versions must get and install it manually from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mimelib/ * make sure you have the latest email module that is available in your system * move the file into your Products directory and unpack it. * restart your Zope server * create a MailHost with the id "MailHost". * add an Emil_Email_Client, check your mails :-)
Known Problems & solutions:
* Upgrading an instance of Emil_Email_Client from an older versionsome attributes are not set after installation of the new version In order to correct this problem, simply go to Client_Properties and press the "change" button. Now the atttributes will be initialized. Add an Emil_Addressbook in you main Emil folder use "AddressBook" for it's id.
* Installing Emil Email Client on older zope versions:older versions of python ( like the one of zope 2.4 ) do not contain the "warnings" module, but the email module 2.0.1 requires it. to check if your python version has it, do the following: shell> python >>> import warnings if it is missing the following error will occur : Traceback (most recent call last): File "
", line 1, in ? ImportError: No module named warnings solution: copy the warnings.py file of Emil_Email_Client into the directory of your email module e.g. cp warnings.py /usr/lib/python2.0/site-packages/email/ restart the zope server.
* I get ImportError: No module named emailthe zope server does not find the email module. Make sure you get the latest version from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mimelib/. If you have multiple installations of python on your machine, make sure the python used by the zope server can find it. if it is available start python in shell mode and write import email if no error message occurs, it was installed correctly.
* Zope 2.5 does not work together with python2.2some people reported installation problems of zope 2.5.x and python 2.2 To run emil it is not necessary to have python 2.2 running. The email module also works with older versions of python. Just install the zope that comes with your linux distrbituion or download a precompiled zope from http://www.zope.org/Products/Zope/I will be happy to hear your comments, please mail to: andorsch
