Though in fairness, Google invests a fair amount of money into open-source, and so using Google products isn't exactly inconsistent (IMHO) with an open source commitment.

Also, we receive a lot of spam. Keeping on top of that through moderation, even with spamassassin and stuff, has been too painful for a while, so we're looking for alternatives. Google Apps obviously isn't a solve all for this, so my query was mostly informational. So I'm at least as curious about how other SPI projects fill these needs, and whether SPI runs any infrastructure for common use by its associated projects. (I realize I should have put that in a new thread.)

Open Source Labs hosts free mailman lists for open source projects.  I'd
go there first.
