I work as a developer in a R&D department. We use email (gmail) as a primary communication mean. Sometimes, fiddling through emails are not easy, especially when working on projects. Emails are forwared and replied and forwarded and so on. And sometimes you forget to CC the emails to certain persons.
I imagine using a webforum can make communication easier. Let's say I send an email to a certain person, e.g with subject "Project 123" and message "Let's start it", then it will be automatically created as a forum post, with title "Project 123" and message body "Let's start it". Each mail reply will also be automatically created as post replies, accordingly.
Is there any open source solution for this purpose? I prefer something PHP/Python based, but as long as it works, then I'm fine :)
