Adding the ability to accept forum posts by email and send forum posts to email would be quite useful. Allowing the integration of a forum and email list would be even better. This has been worked on for phpBB 3.0 in the following MOD's:

phpBB Mail Gateway
viewtopic.php?f=434&t=2139397
http://elric.novitraq.com/phpbb-mail-gateway

forum-mailing list bridge
viewtopic.php?f=70&t=2099210&start=30#p13245718
http://sourceforge.net/p/vassalengine/l ... ster/tree/

mail2forum for phpBB 3
viewtopic.php?f=434&t=603719&start=60#p12958563
http://sourceforge.net/projects/m2f/

This has also been implemented in FUDforum http://cvs.prohost.org/ and GroupServer http://groupserver.org/

m2f is long dead, so far as I know. If we upgrade from phpBB 3.0 to 3.1, I will port my list bridge to 3.1. I'd much rather have this as a built-in feature of phpBB, however.

probably not going to happen as a built-in core feature.

one of the main reasons web based bulletin boards like phpbb were developed was to replace the old mail list type of scripts that people were using in the old days.

I am an old guy and very old fashioned but even I understand that if you want to be part of a web based bulletin board that you have to be willing to visit that board/website whenever you wish to know what is going on.

it really doesn't take any longer to click on a bookmark to the board and check the list of new posts than it does to check your email and browse through a list of posts etc. for some it is even faster and easier to visit the site and check things out.
