I'm looking for a free, hosted mailing list solution.
I recently created a Yahoo Group for organizing some early-morning soccer players, but it is sooo sloooow! It took 2+ hours for my post to appear! That is ridiculous. A little searching revealed that this is an ongoing problem with Yahoo and there appears to be no effort being made by Yahoo to solve the problem.
Something with some decent management/moderation functionality as well as little/no advertising would be nice.
Next stop: check to see if Google offers something. They are usually on-the-ball.
