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