Hi guys,
my users are comfortable to use the usenet newsgroups and so Fudforum it the right choice for us.
But they are also comfortable to use email reader to access to newsgroup server and so I wish to give them the possibility to send post to forum and to receive post from forum by email.

I thought to set a mailing list and then to syncronize this with the newsgroup forum, but I'm not able to do this.

Have you some suggest?

Thanks a lot in advance.
WT

It's Ok, but then they cannot write a message from email client.
Who works with usenet newsgroups usually works with Oulook or Thunderbird to read messages but also to write their post in newsgroup.

FUD Forum it's ok for me and for who works with browser, but I have many colleagues that work with email client.

We have FUDforum running with Web/NNTP/Email posting by syncing Web and NNTP with FUDforum and syncing NNTP and mail via Mailman's NNTP<->Mail gateway.

Perhaps you have some forums with sync from/to NNTP and other forums with Mail Gateway, but separated.
If I already sync a forum with NNTP I cannot sync it ALSO with mail gateway.
Or if it is possible, I was not able to do it.

Ok, I too have my forum up and running now with email notifications.

The above is what I require for my users as well as some will only use email to post.

I have seen Baens Bar uses Mailman.

Is there a tutorial on how to enable my users to reply to the posts on the forum via email only rather than clicking reply and being taken to the forum?

All help gratefully received.

Thank you

Sorry, I never saw this. What you have to do is run all your forums to sync with NNTP and then use mailman to sync between mail and NNTP, not the built-in FUDforum Gateway.

I don't believe there's a tutorial, I had to do it all custom from the ground up. I can try and reach back in my memory and remember exactly what I did if you want though.

Is it not possible to make a forum available as a mailing list? I think I have the same aim as the original poster, so please excuse the thread hijack.

It's possible to link forums to mailing lists, but I had issues with threading in NNTP when I tried to link through mailman to NNTP. However, I think that was because mailman rewrites your messageids which I had to turn off anyway for NNTP->Mail because it messes up threading regardless.
