I can't say whether either of these will fit your bill, but look at 
Mailman (the one that runs these lists) or Sympa (www.sympa.org). The 
advantages Sympa has over Mailman are that the backend is database 
driven, and it is highly customizable in ways that mailman is not.

However it is a total b*tch to install. But, it's written in Perl, 
which I like.
