GNU Mailman 2.0.11
I've just released version 2.0.11 of Mailman, the GNU Mailing List
Manager. Mailman is released under the GNU General Public License
(GPL). Version 2.0.11 fixes two cross-site scripting
vulnerabilities. I recommend that folks upgrade their 2.0.x systems
to this new version.
GNU Mailman is software to help manage electronic mail discussion
lists. Mailman gives each mailing list a unique web page and allows
users to subscribe, unsubscribe, and change their account options over
the web. Even the list manager can administer his or her list
entirely via the web. Mailman has most of the features that people
want in a mailing list management system, including built-in
archiving, mail-to-news gateways, spam filters, bounce detection,
digest delivery, and so on.
Mailman is compatible with most web servers, web browsers, and mail
servers. It runs on any Unix-like operating system. Mailman 2.0.11
requires Python 1.5.2 or newer. To install Mailman from source, you
will need a C compiler.

There are email lists (managed by Mailman, of course!) for both
Mailman users and developers. See the web sites above for details.
