Wondering if anyone knows of a way to do this. Seems like it's relatively easy to set up FUD with email OR NNTP, but not both at the same time. Any suggestions or ideas of where to look would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!,

Not sure where you get that from. You can setup FUDforum to simultaneously import several e-mail lists and usenet groups. We do, however, recommend that you create separate forums for distinct message sources.

Thanks,

I should have been more clear. We are trying to set it up so email and NNTP users can subscribe to the same forum concurrently.

You can see a FUDforum which has successfully integrated web <-> nntp <-> mailman email for a fully 3 way private conferencing system at http://bar.baen.com

The process there is that you register on the web. Registering on the web creates a login for you on the NNTP server for the bar, and the mailman email lists then mirror the newsgroups.

We have created a "subscribe to the forums" page which allows multiple simultanious subscriptions to the various mailman lists.

It works and it works well. We're still tweaking some of our decisions, but the users are very happy.

Certainly there's a mailing list manager. Presumably any forum, even an nntp forum, can be setup as an e-mail mailing list?
