If you’re a developer looking for a simple streamlined mailing list service – or a super scalable one, check out my tutorial at Mailgun’s blog: Open Source Mailing List Applet Using the Mailgun PHP SDK. This project is also written in PHP inside the Yii Framework, which I’ve found to make development very efficient.
You may also be interested it as an alternative to open source PHPList, which has not kept up with its development over the years.
