Hi all,

first of all, in genereal I appreciate efforts to improve communications.

But communication channels are one of the rare things of which two are 
worse than one. It makes it substantially harder to get all messages.

Is there the possibility to configure the forum to act as a mailing list

This is at least disputed. My mail client takes care of orgaizing 
messages into threads. I don't have to actively search for messages, and 
I can read them offline or with an intermittent internet connection.
I can answer messages with a proper text editor.

A forum degrades all that to a web form. Pushing accidentially the wrong 
button might either discard or prematurely send the message.

While I respect that some people like web forms, I would very much 
appreciate to froward the messages from there to the mailing list.

Best regards,
