Forum software that you can post to with email...

I have an old email list I'd like to transform into a forum because I believe it would be less maintenance. Problem is, there are a lot of old timers who still prefer to do everything by e-mail.

Does anyone know of a good bulletin board software (preferably in php with mysql database backend) that will do this? I'm not even sure what to search for.

Try gossamer-threads forum search for "mailarc"

Hmm...it appears that mailarc will take email messages and make them into a forum, but it won't go the other way: as in dump forum posts to email so people who refuse to do forums can do all with email.

Mailgust is also worth a look.

Yeah, those email only members would have to be registered at the forums and subscribe to a "daily digest" via email notification via preferences. May not be what you're lookin' for.
