    Question forum and members email tool

    hi

    can anyone recommend a php tool for implementing discussion forums and email on my site?

    The site will be a community site, so I would like to have membership profiles, discussion forums, and the ability for members to send each other private messages (without disclosing their email addresses).

    I guess very similar to the vBulletin application on this site. But ideally free or very little money!!

    Ideally very customisable so I can retain the sites look and feel.

    Thanks - Jon

    Would you settle for ASP?:

    We're using this on one of our sites...though its recently installed and we don't have many members yet, it does have the features you're looking for.

    if PHP is essential, www.phpbb.com is very good, and free. Install is easy too.

    InvisionBoard is my favorite free forum, though you do have to do a bit of searching to find the free download link.
