We’re currently using Mailman on an Ubuntu server to run our subscription based (Church-wide, “News”) and group oriented (Trustees, Security Desk, Elders, etc) email distributions. Several times recently, Ubuntu updates have broken Mailman, and the guy managing it is tired of fixing it. We are looking for a replacement.
Looking into replacements, we’d like to allow people to opt-in and opt-out of certain lists, for instance, the news or prayer requests lists. We currently facilitate this functionality through opt-out links at the bottom of each email as well as opt-in/out through our website and by directly sending a message to a management address "email@example.com".
We use Office 365 for general staff mail, and also have Servant Keeper. If there a function any of you have used in any of these platforms that allows for self-management of subscriptions? Is there a better piece of software I could be using? What are you guys using to accomplish both church-wide email announcements and group-based coordination?
