Someone mentioned it was possible to moderate the first post of any new member. That should be rather effective against spam.
But what we're really looking for is something that can be used as web forum as well as mailing list, sans spam. We had to shut down our own forums-list gateway because of the spam issues in the forums. But that makes the forums ineffective, since the most active contributors read only the mailing list, not the forums.
Google groups sounded like it might be a good solution. But alternative ideas are welcome :)
