Would something like PHPList work for you?  It's an open source list manager.

If you have any detailed requirements, let me know and I can make further recommendations.

Thanks so much for the help. This actually may be a bit too deep. A co-worker would like to manage a few different lists from different tradeshows and be able to query and sort depending on what she would like to send to each...? Think someone who would normally use .xls but wants more functionality but not a developer, etc.

thanks again

I suppose I should ask how these emails will be sent?  If you're using some sort of mailing broadcast service, they'll likely have list management built in.  If you're just using something like Outlook to send to a few hundred people, doing a mail merge from an Excel spreadsheet might be ideal.

Sometimes the simplest solution is the best, and if the person is already familiar with Excel, I don't see a reason to not stick with that.  Most list services can directly import Excel data.
