BTW, I had a look at the phbb website yesterday and don't understand why
everybody thinks it can't connect to a mailing list when it appears that
the current version of phpbb has the ability to send posts to an MTA. 

This message stream could be directed to an MTA which could run each
message through a spam filter before sending it to mailman, the current
mailing list manager. Even if, for some reason phpbb has to talk to a
dedicated MTA (maybe to use a specialised spam filter) before the
messages are passed directly to mailman or via the current Exim MTA,
using either Exim or Postfix as the intermediate looks to be very
straight forward.
