Question Discussion forum software

Looking to set up some web discussion software for a small group of people (~12). Happy to host it myself or pay for a hosted service.

People currently just email each other, and the goal is to improve this as seamlessly as possible by having all conversations listed in a common forum for people to look at afterwards.

What I'm looking for:
  • Standard online thread view like Trickery / Google Groups etc, sub-forums a useful option
  • Receive messages via email (enabled by default) (message content in the email rather than "click this link to view the message" notifications
  • Send replies to a thread by replying to a message email
  • Optional: The ability to start a new thread by emailing a group bot or similar

Something similar to Google groups, which may be the best option, but to me it always looked a bit unloved in the google family. I haven't done much research yet, this is my opening remarks, so LMGTFY answers appreciated with apologies.

Other randoms thoughts:
  • Ability to apply some branding
  • Ability to have a conversation where email updates only go to certain named people (by the starter), but the conversation is archived for all to see.

If anyone has any recommendations that would be great.

You might want to look at Flarum.

http://flarum.org

Does everything you want I think, plus it works on mobile properly. It has an API so you can extend it to talk to discord / facebook / twitter bots or whatever else you feel like. It is in perpetual beta though if that's not your thing.

Not entirely sure about phpBB, also looked at discourse which i like in general but thinking maybe Google Groups is just what I need.

I have a 34sp.com account currently so I might see about setting up phpBB to see how it works in practice.
