  • This is basically asking for a mailing list and a forum in one right? Something like If so I'd love to have a Lussumo version of Nabble ;)
  • The big advantage of this is that people check their email very very frequently, people have outlook on the whole time at work. Email will be a much faster and easier way for them to get the replies for discussions they've posted and to reply back also. Many people at work wouldn't click on a link in the email to go on a leisure site full of fancy graphics but might well reply by email if they had a chance. But the main advantage - people have more and more memberships in tens of websites all over the web. They cannot possibly visit them all, especially if the community is still small. They register, read what they're interested in and leave, sometimes never returning again. However, if they were able to easily subscribe to a discussion to their email, they'd be much more likely to stay and participate. IMO this add-on would be in the interest of anyone starting off a Vanilla community.
  • I'd be interested in this. I'm sure it's a lot of work though as you're basically writing a mailing list program...
  • Any update on the ability to post and comment via email?
  • bump, please... anyone?
  • Okay so i want to roll out vanilla to a group of old foggies who may or may not like the forum style but deffinitlly want try it. In order to ease them in i will need a way for vanilla to send out any new posts to peoples email and then be able to receive replies to those emails and post in the proper discussion. In essence turning the forum into a email list/forum hybrid.

    I know PHPBB has a similiar feature called Mail-2-Forum. I really like vanilla though and would prefer to use it.

    I have a team of 3 beg. programmers who can devote 1 1/2 weeks, 10hrs per week to the task. Would it be possible to develope this functionality in that time?
