Open Source Newsletter and Mailing List System

Please recommend an open source HTML newsletter and mailing system that I can integrate into my existing website to use the user data from my existing mySQL database. I need it to have tracking of links clicked and opened emails and bounces as per the benchmarkemail.com system I currently use. I will need it to trigger to send emails every week from the date of signup and/or the date of the event as this is an event planning system.

Sorry for taking so long. I had some uni exams. I've installed PHPList on my local Xampp webserver. The only problem is that I don't know how to configure it to send mail in my local test environment. I've looked at the Xampp documentation for configuring Mercurymail but I haven't found it very helpful. Any tips?

Um.  I've never tried to send mail from XAMPP other than using the mail() function.

Try phpmailer?

PHPList installs OK. I'll log any testing issues on XAMPP separately, thankyou.
