Ok, let's start then:

1)       We need to be able to connect to POP server and read the new
messages, and mark them as red.  I will setup test email for development, um
probably not on the corporate one, got too much spam there already.

I can help (with php/sql) not stong in perl but can take a look?

Would say my skills are intermediate but i like a challenge.

I don't like to get my hands in dirty manual work... I can do the engine to
sinc the emails from POP server to DB, and reverse sinc form submit events 
with emails.
(sure mail() function + some way to find out if that is a rely so we can do
the proper topics follow up)

Did anyone ever worked with PEAR? I believe that's the only class that can
allow me POP server access.

If I could program my way out of a corner, lol, I would be glad to help, I
can read code and understand what it does but creating code is not my strong

point. I will help with any testing or ideas if I can. Chris B, what forum
are you planning to deploy? I will do any research that I can to help make
this work, I've thought for a long time that it was a good idea but the 
author of megabbs didn't see it, he is one that doesn't like lists, lol.

Dave
