Email discussion forum

The email discussion forum is a place for members services to ask questions, discuss issues, celebrate success and share good practice with other like-minded services.

Members can sign up as many providers and recipients as they would like to the email forum, meaning that everyone can get involved in asking and answering Enabling Environments queries for their own and others' services.
