I had thought about this but didn't really bother looking into it further since the requirements I was given for this didn't include it. Now that the client has what they asked for its possible that there could be some sort of two-way communication to this. Not sure yet though. As it is right now can be considered the final product unless this two-way communication is really desired by a few users.
I would also like to see this feature. This is slightly difficult to set up though, since there would need to be an email address that phpBB can read and a cronjob, or an email service (like mailgun) and a webhook (perhaps easier?).
DavidIQ: I wouldn't mind spending some time on this, perhaps we can work together? I have no experience with phpBB, but some with mailing lists and php integration (I made something like this for drupal once).

That sounds like a fine idea. If you want to share what sorts of things you had to do with Drupal perhaps I/we (community) can figure out how that can fit in with phpBB.

@exteris and @DavidIQ if you guys can work on this, would be awesome. I know quite a few people in India at least would be grateful, there are quite a few people who are looking to try out phpBB as a solution but discard it due to lack of this extension.

Of course, with Mailman 3.0 and later becoming more and more GUI-friendly it might not be needed after 2-3 years but everybody does not use mailman (some people consider it too fat/bloated) so the success of even that would be limited. Anyways, would be good if the two of you could spend sometime on this.

It's supposed to be one so not sure how you put in more than that. You're supposed to create your own mailing list and then set up this extension with that mailing list's email address, as per the description.

Hi Mr. David,

Many thanks for this extension.

I have a feature request if you can please. I have multiple mailing lists where different forums (or set of forums) are mapped to a particular mailing list. So I need to assign a different mailing list address depending on the forum. In phpBB 3.0.x I was using this Mail Gateway MOD, which allows this feature. Please note that I am not asking for the reverse function (mail to forum which Mail Gateway also supports), just being able to forward posts to different mailing lists depending on the sub-forum.

Thanks in advance for your kind consideration.

I had thought about this one at some point. I've created an issue entry for it:
https://github.com/DavidIQ/phpBB-MailingList/issues/3

I just realized I haven't released this...something else to do while stuck indoors on account of this blizzard...
