We've been working quite a bit lately with mailing list managers and
we're currently using Lyris.  It's a little expensive but very stable,
the UI could also do with a little work! 

Some others that aren't quite free but reasonably priced:


Mailman - http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/index.html is also a
possibility but have never actually used it.

Hope this helps.
