Exactly like? So it's a mailing list manager...

I use the email interface to (I'd prefer not to have to, but
it is what it is) and I find that email to the group usually
have broken references headers and the threading is broken because of
this. I also see lots of replies to list and to me as well and it
drives me crazy.

I don't think I have any experience of Discourse.

Mailing lists have worked for me for way over 35 years so I am
resistant to change.
