I am looking to create an internal 'Experts Exchange' for an IT technical department where they can share information along the lines of Experts Exchange. The features I am looking for in particular are:

ability to create categories

ability to create 'threads' on topics within categories

ability to send links to specific threads to specific topics via e-mail - the way that Experts for instance sends notifications that there has been activity on a topic;

ability to archive/create knowledge bases

ability to have someone act as the administrator of this 'forum'

The closer the product can be made to mimic Experts the better.

This product will be used by a small group of people so I don't need a product that is built with a capacity to have  hundreds or thousands of participants hammering questions at it relentlessly - the package should be light-weight in resource requirements and easy to setup and administer and be Windows-based.

I would especially like to hear from folks who have done something like this for their own IT departments. I am also not opposed to buying this functionality as a 'service' from third parties.

”The time we save is the biggest benefit of E-E to our team. What could take multiple guys 2 hours or more each to find is accessed in around 15 minutes on Experts Exchange.
