Can anyone recommend technical solutions on the integration of 
contact databases with e-mail lists?  I am specifically interested in how 
to allow users to opt-into specific information announcement services as 
well as other interest group discussions based on information they 
provide via a web enabled contact database.

I am helping network the "democracy online" community (in 
particular those producing 2000 election information, online events, and
interaction in the United States).  I like to have the ability to allow
someone in our contact database to manage the handful of one-way list
options we might have from a password protected web page (with web
archives of past postings) and opt-into possible small group (3 to 50?
people) discussions based on who they are, where they are from, or 
what they are interested in.  I am well aware of what EGroups and 
others have produced but this is something that would be for more or 
less internal participation in WWB and need to be under our direct 

This is being built from scratch so suggestions about the best web-
enabled database system, list software, hardware, software 
platform, and hosting are welcome.
