MailMan is portable, managable with a web browser, and about as simple

I use MailMan for a dozen or so lists, Linux Australia uses it for about
40, and I have clients who use it for a handful to a sheaf of lists

password, switch on web interface), and managing it is much less
mind-blowing than it ever traditionally has been.
