Email list and forum

 From my perspective, the forum came from users not from the board. We 
had years of the 'list being criticized as unfit to be on the internet, 
and a forum being touted as the solution.

We're not limited to the current mailman 2 software. Let me know if you 
have a better solution.

My preferences:

open source, non-proprietary, free
ability for users to choose their delivery format (html or text, 
pictures or not)
web-archive which we own
run under PBS domain name.

There's the 'audience' problem, we've run a low bandwidth text maillist 
for many years, the current users are those who like that solution. 
Changing to anything else will upset more than it will please.

I like the admin burden is much smaller. What I have against 
it, is that they want a lot of money to run it under your own domain.

I can flick a switch and this will be a html 'list with pictures. But is 
anyone going to be unhappy when they get 100MB of pictures in their mailbox.

When we did have pictures on the 'list, I got complaints that the size 
allowed (many MB) was too small.
