In our administration survey of 900 Drupal administrators one of the  
most important tasks for Drupal administrators was integration of  
Drupal and mail.

There is a wide array of different solutions each meeting the various  
subtle but important details related to mail integration.   I would  
suggest that you attempt to get some mail changes into Drupal core.   
A good place to start would be getting mail.inc, http:// 
cvs.drupal.org/viewcvs/drupal/contributions/modules/mimemail/ into  
Drupal core.  I have discussed this with Neil, the current core  
maintainer and he is interested in seeing all Drupal mail functions  
use a standard mail API.

If you would like to help write a chart showing all the various mail  
integration options I'd be happy to work with you to show them all.

Mass Mailers: Mass mailer and PHPList, Simple News, and eNewsletter
Mailing list integration: Mailing List manager, OG_Simpa, OG2List(an  
Drupal based mailing list manager)
Mail helper modules: Listserve, mail handler, notify, Mime Mail
Modules that use mail: contact, invite, cart, and dozens of others.

HOWTO: Integrate mailing lists with forums using listhandler and  
mailhandler: http://drupal.org/node/40777

Yes, these modules need updating for Drupal 4.7 as do the docs.  If  
you have time to contribute, CivicSpace can provide mentorship.
