Okay here is the story.

My brother is a lawyer and he has a group of around 800 lawyers who are all on his listserv.

He has the idea that it would be possible to:
1. Set up a private forum on his website for these lawyers.
2. Somehow combine the listserv into the forum? He wants every email someone sends out to be created as a topic on the forum and all the replies to be replies to the topic.
Example
Lawyer1 sends an email to everybody on the listserv with the Title "Is there a law that prevents such and such"(This would be the title of the forum post and everything else he writes will be inside his post.)
Lawyer2+3+4+5+6 respond to the original email and these are actually response to Lawyer1's email.(Even possibly going as deep as quoting other responses/post respectively.)



Is this possible?

Thanks!

I can't believe no one responded to this. This is exactly the way FUDforum works.

Could you go into detail on how we could accomplish this?

It's standard functionality that you get out of the box. For details, see Mailing List Manager.
