OK. I thought that might be the case, but good to confirm.

Use a private NNTP server to store the conversation articles, and one of the WWW-based news reader/post
tools to provide the forum version; use mail2news to link the mailing list to the NNTP environment.
Easy to manage, known to work at scale, uses standard components (no development required, just
configuration), does not mandate special software at the client side. Shouldn't take you more than a day
or two to set up.
