Ecartis (fomerly known as Listar) is a mailing list management program. It has a lot of similarities to Listserv (which was one of its inspirations), but has been written from scratch to support the features and abilities that the authors felt were lacking (or hard to modify/change) in some of the other list management programs available. Its main flexibility is that it is written around a plugin layer (similar to Apache), which allows you to customize and extend the manager in ways that otherwise would be hard.
MailSpammer is a simple mailing list manager for smaller e-mail lists, using procmail and Perl. MailSpammer does not require administrator access, aside from initial setup (creating e-mail aliases), and features subscription, unsubscription, moderation, and archiving. The goal is not to be a majordomo-alike mailing list manager, but instead to provide a lightweight way to handle basic list management tasks.
MailWatch is a program for analyzing mail traffic. As each message is received, Mailwatch records summary information about it. Later, it can generate a textual report, showing the number of posts during a time period, who the most prolific posters were, and what the most popular topics were. It is targeted at the end user who wishes to generate statistics for personal email or mailing lists.
Majordomo is a program which automates the management of Internet mailing lists. Commands are sent to Majordomo via electronic mail to handle all aspects of list maintainance. Once a list is set up virtually all operations can be performed remotely, requiring no intervention by the postmaster of the list site.
Dada Mail can help you manage a mailing list, offers complete support for safe, closed-loop opt-in subscriptions, sends out mass mailings, keeps an archive of your messages, and allows you to share your messages in many ways. It runs on your Web hosting account and you interact with it through your Web browser, making it available anywhere you have a connection to the Internet. You do not have to rely on a third-party list management system with costly monthly fees. It is rich with features, but tries to keep it simple. It is designed to favor flexibility, extensibility, and ease-of-use over core speed or extremely flashy but hard-to-use features. It is designed to be installed, set up, and understood by regular people who have Web sites, but has enough advanced features to entice more proficient users. If you've ever installed a bulletin board or blog software, you should be able to install Dada Mail without too many problems. Dada Mail can scale. You can install Dada Mail on most any basic hosting account and start sending out messages. If your mailing list grows large, you can switch to sending with a more powerful third-party system, like Amazon SES, where there's potentially no limit on the number of emails you may send, all without having to change mailing list management systems or your hosting.
