I've long wanted to - but never quite got around to - write a forum that integrated a mailing list. Bar mail clients that don't handle list threads well, it really doesn't seem such a difficult task.
There actually seem to be a lot of these around. I'm on several that send me email when there are new forum postings.

On typo3.org there used to be mailing lists only in a distant past. Later on newsgroups were set up which communicate with the mailing lists (newsgroups are the central source of messages). Rather recently a forum was built on top of the newsgroup data (FUD forum was used). Users on all three message sources can easily communicate with eachother. Only some mail clients have difficulty keeping the threading headers in tact, but other than that there are no real issues.

Met vriendelijke groet,

Jigal van Hemert.
