I agree that most user won't subscribe to a mailling list for just one or two
questions. A web based Discussion board might be more appropriate. Maybe it
could be somehow replicated as a mailinglist, so that people that like to help
others regulary have a convinient interface.

I'm not sure that such a think will help a lot, but mailing-lists are not so
well suited for many short questions.
