Any suggestions for email-based discussion lists? I need ability to handle attachments, a web archive of some sort, an ability to have 'audit' list members who can read but not post, and a simple administration interface.
Basic Yahoo without the ads would be fine. I belong to dozens of yahoo lists; they are too complex for my users. (Simple mail lists with Yahoo works, but once you get into the Yahoo 'identity' etc., people come unravelled when trying to use the archives, files, photos, and all that junk.) Plus, the ads make my blood run cold.
Mailman is free and working so-so but I'm wondering if there's anything better that is practical. The list I'm concerned about is a couple dozen members who are on a board of directors, and a few hundred vultures wanting to look over their shoulder. Ease of administration is really important
