Dear All,

My environment:
plone 3.0.4 and
Zope 2.10.5-final,
python 2.4.4, (My system has a default Python 2.3.4.)
OS: Redhat linux.

It is difficult to install the mailtoplone.base and mailtoplone.contentrules
to the plone. I first use the eggs by:
# /opt/Plone-3.0.4/Python-2.4.4/bin/easy_install mailtoplone.base
# /opt/Plone-3.0.4/Python-2.4.4/bin/easy_install mailtoplone.contentrules

But the content type mailtoplone does not show up in the plone Add-on
products list. Then I copy the base and contentrules to the Plone instance
(zinstance) Products folder by:
# cp -pr
#  cp -pr

Finally, the two mailtoplone component showed up in the plone Add-on product
list, and then I install them. After that, I created a type
"mailtoplone.base: InBox" named globalinbox. The problem is that I failed to
drop email to globalinbox by the script dropemail. The following is the
result of running the script (the /var/spool/mail/plone is the email file):
# /opt/Plone-3.0.4/Python-2.4.4/bin/python

I thought creating another "mailtoplone.base: InBox" type xmlrpcview can fix
the missing "Resource:",
but I was wrong. After creating the xmlrpcview, it showed missing "Resource:". Then I create the
"mailtoplone.base: InBox" type drop, but I was wrong again. It shows missing
Then I created the "mailtoplone.base: InBox" type folder_listing, but I was
wrong again. It showed missing "Resource:",
and then I knew that I went to the wrong way.

Any hints are highly appreciated! Thank you!!
