Very Small Mailing List Suggestions

I'm trying to come up with a solution for notifying my clients (~30 people) of important events like security patches or upcoming vacations, etc.

Copy/pasting the same message to multiple parties is getting old fast. Ideally it would be a PHP script that I could host myself and send mail via php or my self hosted SMTP server.

It needs the ability to:
  • Have the same person be apart of multiple lists (ex: Clients General, Clients - Wordpress, Clients - XenForo)
  • Allow me to manually subscribe people without opt-in but offer a one click unsubscribe link
  • Have basic text replacements. For instance, Hi [NAME] would automatically pull the client's name from the database and insert it.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Dan

A list that size is within the free sending limits of MailChimp.

Any interest in trying an email newsletter service instead of a hosted php script?

I don't really need a newsletter so much as a notification type thing. Similar to tech mailing lists. Wikimedia for example has an announce list that notifies of upcoming releases. They use GNU mailman which is way more than I need.

I will check out MailChimp though maybe a little creative thinking will make it work for what I need.
