SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We are using Microsoft Exchange together with Active Directory and MOSS 2007. I want to accomplish the following:

Interest groups defined already in AD and used as Mailing Lists inside Exchange. How can we create a site in SharePoint for this Interest group and at the same time have a Forum inside that SharePoint site which also reflects the conversations done in the Exchange mailling list.

I was thinking if the forum could be a list, then the list could somehow subscribe to the Exchange list and recieve a copy of the conversation, and it would appear in the forum on the interest group.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

If you set up inbound mail for SharePoint you can email enable a list including the discussion threads. If you setup a forwarder to that email address the messages would be logged in the forum.

Here is a good article on inbound email. http://blogs.msdn.com/neilth/archive/2007/10/26/sharepoint-2007-incoming-email.aspx

You can add your AD group to a SharePoint group so that when you update your AD group, the SharePoint group does not need to be edited.
