Re: [ALPHA] foum-mailing list bridge

I have given up on this one myself. And many of us have been waiting for the old mail2forum effort, but if you are reading this, you need to also give up on that. I have had success using Elric's phpbb-mail-gateway with PHPBB 3.0.11 with YahooGroups. It seems to like email in and email out. It also ...

Re: HELP: Upgrading From 3.0.8 to 3.0.11

Re: How did you become a MODwriter?

I was an active participant in a mailing list. We were outgrowing the listserv software, so I took the task of converting to a board format. I evaluated UBB, phpBB, and one other that escapes me at the moment. I actually paid for UBB. :-) I settled ...

mailing list integration

Does anyone know if there exists a method or if it is at all possible to have both a bulletin board that can also act like a mailing list similar to listserv where people can receive new posts (including messages, not just links to the post), start new threads from their email and reply ...

listserv connected to phpbb usergroups

I know listserv's in general have been discussed here in these forums, but I guess I don't really know enough about it to extrapolate the information I need from the help given. My situation is pretty simple. I would like to ...
