What are the requirements/characteristics of the "newsletter app"=20
you're looking for? Does it need to have stats/campaign tracking? Is=20
a web interface required, or can the user simply format and send his=20
e-mail message via e-mail to the server? Does it need to provide the=20
ability for users to subscribe and unsubscribe themselves? How will=20
the newsletter owner upload his list? What format will (should?) the=20
list be in when he uploads it? How large will the lists be? If they=20
are small enough, then most mail clients should be able to provide=20
the basic functionality of sending a newsletter to a list.

>I was playing with mailman , but that seems to be a list serve app.

The proper term is "list server," so as not to confuse with=20
"Listserv," which is a copyrighted product (developed by Eric Thomas=20
and L-Soft).
