Yup, thanks to everyone who pointed me in the direction of documentation
on how to do it too. I'll give it more thought, but at present I think
the in-game and web-based access to the message boards is sufficient.
Unless I end up with a significant number of players (that is to say
80+ which would probably take considerable time to achieve) I don't
think the number of people who'd use it would make it worth the effort.
