UBB is a great solution for what you're looking for.  The 'lite' version
is extremely easy to install (on both Windows & UNIX platform), so I'm
guessing that if you need their enterprise version, it's just as easy to

And, I would consider it to be cost effective, too.  Around $199 for
their UBB Classic version which will work with your mail server to send
e-mails when posts are made, etc.

Check them out...

Hi all,
Starting a new job with UC Berkeley (I used to post to this list from my
job at Oxygen before my site went belly-up).

Anybody have good (or bad!) experience to report with message
board/threaded discussion tools, anything from Zope to Slash to Web

The platform is still uncertain -- we will definitely be not using a
Microsoft product, we'll probably be using Apache on Linux (we have a
strong request to use ACS -- probably not going to happen). As for our
needs, we need to allow people to trade information in a threaded format
and preferably have the ability to get alerts when someone else posts to
their topic. Thanks very much for any input.
