    Just as an outsider (with sysadmin experience) looking in...

    Something like that would require some back-end scripting to set up since most mail servers aren't usually tied into message boards. It shouldn't be too hard though (assuming that one knows how to write perl scripts), since most of the info needed to set this up can be easily accessed from the forum's database. The question is whether or not to accept the added liability of providing mail accounts to random members as well as any issues they may cause (i.e., would it be a problem to receive a 50mb email), as well as server loads, bandwidth limits, etc.
