Can anyone recommend experts 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 management.

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