Hi Antonio, the forum software we use certainly supports e-mail gateways and NNTP gateways:

Quote:


FUDforum includes tools which will allow the forum to be used to archive newsgroups (NNTP) and mailing lists. In addition, FUDforum allows the administrator to permit forum members to post messages back to a mailing list or a newsgroup. This feature makes FUDforum an ideal access point to newsgroups and mailing lists for those who cannot access those resources directly.



In case you are interested more documentation is available here:

We have not really looked into this possibility up to now -- partly due to lack of time, but also because the current system seems easy to use -- you can subscribe to any forum or topic to receive e-mail about new posts, and the e-mail contains a hyperlink you can use to post replies. Allowing e-mail to directly flow into the forum would also open us up to spam, and would probably require us to moderate all the forums.

I'm interested in hearing from others about whether they think setting up an e-mail <--> mailing-list gateway would greatly increase the usefulness of the forums.

Tony
