One of the things I have always liked about e-mail discussion lists as opposed to forums is that I can store the e-mails on my hard drive which I can then index and search with various tools. Is there any way the new Forum can produce an e-mail digest or the like which is sent out to people who request it? Would it even be possible to generate e-mails of threads or even individual postings?
In case you can't tell, I think I prefer the e-mail list format to the forum format (although I agree with everyone that the ads on Topica were rather unsightly and intrusive).
