    Ikonboard features vs. PhpBB

    First, a thank you to all for the great information I've already come away with from this board about Ikonboard and PhpBB!!

    My one BIG question, is if anyone knows whether either of these board allows sending mailings to all members from the administrator? I would like to send out a monthly newsletter to all subscribers, and am looking for the best board to go with.

    Anyone know if vBulletin offers that feature? I love the Sitepoint forums and would spend the money on vBulletin if they offered that feature and the others didn't.

    Thanks much, and have a GREAT weekend! TGIF!! :-)

    I know ikon board does not currently have this feature built in but some one will have most likely wrote the script to do it, If they have not I will have to write it as I want this feature also.

    Thanks guys...

    Did some more reasearch today and looks like vBulletin is the only one that has mailing features the admin can use....I guess I'm going to have to try to install the "lite" version this weekend and see how it goes!

    Thanks,

    Steve

    All right, but since you can't have memberships on vB Lite, you won't be able to e-mail members. vB Lite is intended to test your server for vB compatability.
