Kyle,<br><br>This is probably a crazy idea that if I think long enough about I'd realize won't work. But, instead, I'll just put it out there :)<br><br>It seems easy enough for the forum and list to connect in one direction, on a user-by-user basis. I assume your forum will have the ability to email registered users with new posts, probably on a per-forum basis. So, developers sticking to the lists could register at the forum, and just have everything emailed to them.
<br><br>However, then it falls apart.......unless......<br><br>Would it be possible to have the forum itself (or some bot on a server) subscribe to the mailing list? When a message comes into the forum, try to match up the subject line to place the message into the right topic thread. If none exists, place it in a forum called something like "From the List". Further, replies in the "From the List" forum would always be emailed out to the list.
<br><br>This would integrate the forum and lists together pretty well I think.<br><br>Like I said, probably a crazy idea.<br>--Steve<br><br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 7/24/07, <b class="gmail_sendername">Kyle Bassett
