And plain email newsletters are outdated.

Mailing services can send an HTML version with a headline and 1-2 lines of
text for each article, click on the ones that interest you to open the whole
article.  I am subscribed to a newsletter from HowToGeek.com and that's how
they do it.  And in addition to managing unsubscribes and bounces for you,
they can provide analytics, so you know which articles are getting read, who
is reading them and when.

Even a nonprofit or government organization shouldn't be sending out emails
that look like they came from 1998.  Unless they don't really care if people
read them.

Or, for $0.00 use Mailman, which is now standards with BlueOnyx?

I get what the boss is getting at.  I'm always sensitive to users wanting to
keep costs at a minimum but there are sometimes costs of doing business,
even for a not-for-profit organization.  And even if they're not exactly ace
computer techs over there, I bet they can pick up on a new and better system
for mailing list management.  It may even wind up saving them considerable
time and effort once they get comfortable.  Keep in mind, these are the very
same types of folks who will get (and figure out) a new smartphone or that
sort of thing.
