These instructions were taken from the Yahoo Festivarian list.
If there's any corrections let me know, and I'll add it to the FAQ later....

Perhaps I can be of some assistance here. A forum is different from an
email distribution list in that it takes place on a website rather than
through email. A forum has many advantages such as discussion categories
and an easy to search archive of discussion topics. That said, one thing
you can do is syndicate the content of the forum and have it emailed to
you. All you have to do is go to
http://www.rssfwd.com/
and enter
http://www.festivarian.com/index.php?PHPSESSID=4cec3008f090e3a25943e3e406ee7987&type=rss;action=.xml

into the feed URL box. It will then prompt you for your email address and
viola! You now have the forum in your Outlook.

Great idea on the rssfwd.com. That looks like I great tool.

I added a couple RSS link/buttons to the main forum page that contain
the RSS links. To subscribe to the entire forum, click on the little
blue button at the bottom of the main page next to "Festivarian
Forum." To subscribe to the RSS feed for a particular board, use the
button/link next to the board's name on the main page.

The trick is that you have to specify how many recent posts to include
in the feed. To modify this value, you'll need to edit the "limit="
part of the URL when you enter it into your feed-reader or RssFwd. By
default I have these set to 10 for the whole forum and 5 for the
individual boards.

Does any one know how I can get Thunderbird to display the forum instead of the limited pared down email snippet for posts. It used to but I changed something and can't figure out what
