> 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.
