I have two experiences with this.

wine works okay with this but annoys forum users since they can not
edit. The backupcentral to bacula forum integration is annoying
because the forum encodes blocks into html but sends it as text so any
time a user on the forum uses the code block feature it becomes
unreadable on the mailing list..

Same here. I read my email at least hourly. If this was a samba forum
I would most likely only participate when I experience a problem that
I want solved. And that does not happen often with samba..
