I'm looking for a bulletin board script that will allow me to set it up so the moderator of each forum is notified via email every time there is a post to their specific forum.

Can anyone recommend a script?

Welcome To Webmaster World!

I would recommend either phpBB or invision. To help decide between the two:

If your budget is higher than "free", check out vBulletin, too.

If you happen to be hosted on a Windows server, an ASP forum may be more convenient. Snitz is popular, though I've never installed it. Sites like hotscripts.com can give you a lot of ideas for free and paid scripts.

I'd give an ogle at punbb, too - nice and lightweight (meaning fast fast fast! and not overloaded with features). My guess would be that it'd let mods get mailed - this is just 'subscribing' to a forum, which I believe is fairly common, or at least I've seen very, very basic forum boards with that capacity years ago already.

I've been using PunBB - a lightweight forum similar to PHPBB. No frills, straightforward and clean code.
