Subject Re: Collecting (and organizing) mail messages

This has been discussed previously, and is also known as a "mail-in"  

Unfortunately we don't support it yet (but it would be relatively  
easy to write a plugin for it).  My experience from a similar thing  
in our company is that some people like it, but in general its  
usefulness is severely limited.

A proper mailing list software (e.g. Mailman) which generates a  
searchable archive automatically is a lot more useful.
