Although the forum is working perfectly, has anyone been able to get the mailing list feature working on Windows??

I'm using IIS6 with Merak mail server and I should surely be able to find someone who has achieved this?

Or at the very least suggest an integrated forum / mailing list system that WILL work with Windows?

I haven't tried on Windows yet. However, do you have any reason to belief that it won't work? If you run into problems you are welcome to report them here.

Best regards.

Yes indeedy...

The mailing system requires procmail, and there's not an actual equivelant that I'm aware of, nor a suitable scheduling system for mail collection.

Having said all that, I've found a phpBB hack which seems to work, so I might have to go there... unless anyone know different.

Besides the fact the procmail is available for Windows as well, you don't need it at all. The provided example is using procmail, but you can pipe mail from a file or any other program that prints it into the forum.
