      The parsing script then looks for a properly formed subject header, if the header isn't properly formed then it either goes into a General forum, or it isn't posted at all.
       
      I believe that something like that would probably work.
       
      I own two forum sites myself, and an increasing number of people are attempting to reply to threads by email. I find myself having to remind them that they can't do that and must return to the site to reply to the threads.

      It should be noted that you can't create new topics via email, only
      reply to topics.

      Since the forum system is categorized, I haven't found a good way to
      accept incoming new messages and apply them to the proper forum.

      I am open to suggestions, but it's not a priority since most people
      use the Forum to post because they can post to only the parts of the
      library that they need help with.
