I tried Sympa on the now disactive eskimo.iglu.org.il. It wasn't too bad, but:

1. Required running a daemon written in Perl all the time, and we were short 
of memory on the server.

2. Stored the addresses in a MySQL database. Not such a bad idea, but we also 
had MySQL stability problems there.

Of course eskimo.iglu.org.il was old and a bit dysfunctional, so one can 
expect that on most modern functional systems it will run better. The new 
version uses Template Toolkit for its web-site templates so it should be 
pretty nifty.


Aside from that, there's also Siesta:

* http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2004/02/05/siesta.html

* http://search.cpan.org/dist/Siesta/

As Perl applications go, it tends to have quite a few CPAN dependencies.
