> I agree, I quite like PHPbb2 (http://www.phpbb.com/). I have installed ti in several places. IMO it has a good balance between flexibility and complexity.
I would suggest phpBB as well. The Gentoo people have been able to
make it scale very well (forums.gentoo.org)
> The only problem is that having both forum and email support can tend to dilute both. An integrated system where both interfaces could be used but I guess threading of messages could be a problem.
I'm more of a fan of forums mainly because they allow people to go
back and edit responses and have better searching capabilities than
most mailing lists.
