Drupal has modules that provide mass mail. You will find them on the 
drupal.org site, modules.
simplenew - i have it working on 4 sites, pretty basic but does well.
mass mailer - an engine for other mailer packages, primarily phplist, 
last time i tried it about 5 months ago, still had issues

Civicspace is based on drupal and the folks there have contributed 
several of the modules available. downloadable from the civicspacelabs 
site;  http://civicspacelabs.org/home/developers/download
