Nexcess.net's affordable shared and reseller plans all support phplist, the popular open-souce mail list manager. Phplist is a PHP program that uses MySQL as a database back-end for storing information. It is a web-based application that allows users to subscribe to mailing lists, and allows the administrator to manage these lists and send out e-mail to large numbers of subscribers.
Phplist is a one-way e-mail list system, meaning that it does not support two-way e-mail discussion lists, but is instead geared towards sending newsletters, announcements, notifications, etc. to large numbers of reciptients. The system also tracks the number of e-mails received, as well as some idea of how many were opened and viewed. It supports HTML e-mail messages.
