Mailing list manager

Sympa is scalable and customizable mailing list manager. its goal is to automate all mailing-list operation such as subscription with automatic authentication, unsubscription, but also archiving message, sending digests on a regular basis, expiration of addresses, and so on. It can handle big lists (200,000 subscribers) and comes with both user and admin Web interface. It is internationalized, and supports the us, fr, de, es, it, fi, and chinese locales. You can extend the behavior of commands with its scripting language, and create dynamic mailing lists by linking to an LDAP directory or an RDBM. Sympa provides S/MIME and HTTPS based authentication and encryption, and is compatible with most SMTP engines.
