Self-Hosted phpList Alternatives

One of a handful of full-featured, open-source mailing list apps, phpList provides a viable free, self-hosted and freemium SaaS alternative to the commercial dominated landscape. Other comparable open-source tools do exist. Different from phpList, many facilitate communication using discussion lists. phpList only sends mail and doesn't allow replies. On the upside, phpList enables complex targeting within subscriber lists.

Alternatives are generally either web-based or, like phpList, provide a self-hosted solution.
