[Mailman-Users] Web Forum Frontend to Mailinglist

What I was really looking for is what the original poster asked (and what this thread subject is).
I'm building a new home for an active Yahoo Group, a lot of the members read and post to the mail
list exclusively from the Yahoo Group. I haven't found anything that would let Mailman (or any other
mail list software) do the same thing.

I only asked about the News Gateway because it was mentioned as a standard Mailman feature, it seems
like a Web Gateway would be a lot more popular.

Any Ideas?

Yes, or at least working with a news provider that allows you to add
newsgroups--though in the latter case you've got to deal with a wider

I think what the other poster was recommending was using newsgroups
*instead* of a web forum. Otherwise, once you've got the newsgroup
running you still need to create the Usenet-Web gateway software.
We've done it, but it required programming (I don't know if there are
any off-the-shelf solutions for Usenet-Web gateways).
