Try dadamail, aka mojomail.

It can be configured to store the list information in a flat file (above 
webroot) or in a database table. It also provides throttling cabability, 
critical for shared servers with common limits of 200-500 messages per 
hour). The more recent releases will store names as well as email 
addresses.  There is an import function for csv I think.  I don't 
remember whether it is called resume or what but there is some 
functionality for managing if the server goes down or the internet 
connection is halted.  Standard folder and file permissions of 755 and 
644 respectively I believe.
