duh, use both mailing lists and forums.  any new forum post -> new  
post to the list.  and vice versa.

my vote, if we can't get that working, is to do both, even if we  
can't keep them in sync.  those who want to use the list will use the  
list, and those on the forum can do that too .. its not a bad thing  
to have two camps to sit in.

mailing lists always seem to tend to have a much faster mean response  
time between participants than forums do, and this is precisely why  
forums are often preferred, for their general 'lagginess' which  
doesn't require attention the user isn't willing to spend unless its  
on their own schedule.. both means of communication are valid for  
different reasons.
