Re: Mhonarc

Have you considered switching over to something like Phorum?

The blurb on the phorum.org webpage states:

Phorum is a web based message board written in PHP. Phorum is designed with 
high-availability and visitor ease of use in mind. Features such as mailing 
list integration, easy customization and simple installation make Phorum a 
powerful add-in to any website.

There are quite a few customisations available and I think it might suit the 
etrax mailing list.
You could set it up to provide access only via the web, or only allow 
posting new messages via
the web.  I think it can be configured or customised to prevent the email 
address showing,
or if you want it available then only show it to authenticated users.
