Why do you need a forum with a mailing list?
Forums are non-standard. Mailing lists have software to process
them in many ways. Many are archived -- not something you get with forums.
Forums seems to be a 'windows' thing for users when companies want
to be able to ignore their user base.
Emails cause the companies too much headache because the user's emails
end up in employee inboxes and cause distractions from doing "real work", so they
try to put users in forums, so they won't distract the companies' employees.
