Does any one know…

of a good product for newsletters/discussion forums/informational updates. I have a writing group I’m associated with for the GenCon writers symposium. We’re planning on putting out an newsletter with writing tips, interviews, and updates for the writers in the symposium. We were originally thinking a simple email program to send out mass emails to the subscribers, something with easy opt-in and opt-out capabilities so we wouldn’t have to update the list manually.

The more I think about it, though, the more I like the idea of a hosted discussion group of some sort. Yahoo Groups is one choice, but I’ve always found them a little, I dunno, clunky? Unprofessional? I’d like something that looks clean and that has functionality for (preferrably optional) emailing of members when updates are made, opt-in & opt-out (preferably with approvals by group owner), threaded discussions, an area for links, an area for file downloads (like for old newsletters).

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks for your thoughts…
