If lists on your site are set up to receive e-mail, you can specify an e-mail address for the discussion board as you create it.

1. Click View All Site Content, and then click Create on the All Site Content page.

2. Under Communications, click Discussion Board.

3. In the Name box, type a name for the discussion board. The name is required.

4. In the Description box, type a description of the discussion board. The description is optional. If you plan to enable the discussion board to receive content by e-mail, you could add its e-mail address to the description, so people can readily find it.

5. In the Navigation section, specify whether you want the discussion board to appear on the Quick Launch.

6. To enable the discussion board to receive e-mail, under Enable this list to receive e-mail, click Yes. This option will not be available if your server is not set up to receive e-mail.
