Below a bit of literacy about m2f (for phpbb)
Mail 2 Forum joins two separate worlds of internet based communication together.
Until now, the phpBB web based bulletin board or forum systems existed completely separately and isolated from existing email based mailing list or list serve systems. Each system operated independently. Separately, each system has its own advantages and disadvantages.
* Electronic mailing lists are very simple and convenient for the end user, no harder than using the email he or she already uses. The disadvantage is there is little history or organization of past discussions. Emails tend to get lost in time and an email?s content is only available to the original recipients. While some lists servers have the ability to keep a history or ?archive? the email messages, the archiving is usually non-intelligent and non-categorized leaving the user with a mess of unorganized messages. Additionally, ?archiving? is only uni-directional, meaning you may only go back and view the archives.
* At the same time web based forums like phpBB are very well suited for organized bi-directional discussion. Users may view or contribute to a subject by posting to a new or existing ?thread? of information in any category now or in the future. Unfortunately, this requires the user to use the web based interface, for some this may be less convenient than email.
Although, web based forums and email list serves both have the common purpose of communication, each system achieves this very differently.
The purpose of Mail 2 Forum is to overlap the functionality of both forum systems and mailing list systems. Mail 2 Forum gives the user the best of both worlds.
