Does anybody know how to automatically forward any emails sent to a domain(ie support@mywebsite.com) to post on a message board?  

I'm looking for an easy solution to this any websites, tutorials or general information would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

You have three options:

1- Email Piping: It means that the server will forward any thing it receives on that email to your script, then the script will parse the message.
have a look at this question for an example
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/PHP/Q_20948884.html

2- A script that will check your email (IMAP or POP3) and then send the messages. You can put the script in the cron tab to make it run every 5 minutes or smt

3- If you don't have the above options available, then you can just get an email with gmail, then you can use a script like this one http://www.phpclasses.org/browse/package/3516.html to retrive the messages from your inbox and send them to the board.

Kind Regards
