Sounds as though you aren't using your email client properly. Any good
email client will allow automatic direction of email with [slim] in the
header to a specific folder and will allow grouping by thread / time.
What's the problem?

I don't really see the point in maintaining the e-mail functionality,
especially if it's complicating and delaying the browser-based forum.
Web-based forums (perhaps complemented with an RSS-feed) are where it's at
today. Who in their right minds actually wants to receive tons of e-mail of
which probably only 1% to 10% is of interest to them? I only subscribed so
I could respond to one or two threads and I now have a mail folder with
about 934 unread e-mails.



Can we take a vote? Who would like to see the browser-based forum up and
running even if it means closing down the e-mail list?

I realize that there is this desire to create forums that won't leave email
list subscribers out in the cold, but a forum is really due especially with
the flood of new users on this list recently.

The forums went into beta/test over 3 months ago and since then we've had no
info on what the status is with them. I am getting a little tired of the
flood of email on this list but I won't unsubscribe until a forum is up that
can be used to post/respond to issues.
