So, the holy grail is:

(a) to be able to send an email and create a new thread,
(b) to be sent an email when someone replies to a thread,
(c) to be able to reply to THAT email and thereby create a new posting in the same thread,
(d) to receive an email when anyone posts to a new or existing thread in a forum I am interested in.

With Gretchen's help, I have achieved (a).

Issue #1: The thread is created in the 'Mondrian Mailing List' forum. Could it be created in the 'Mondrian [Pentaho Analysis Services]' forum?

I have not yet also achieved (b). Or maybe my email is sluggish right now.

Issue #2: Gretchen, do you expect that (b) and (c) will work?

Issue #3. To be best of my knowledge, vBulletin doesn't support (d).
