Incoming mail handling: probably mailutils or modules for your fave
scripting language (I like PLT Scheme,

Limited automated doc -> plain conversion: antiword, wv

Mail -> News and mailing list: mailman

Newsserver: Probably sn or leafnode would do if you can't use an existing one.

Mail -> weblog (xhtml or RSS feeds) could be automated with MaBloss
from: and I'll answer questions
if emailed.

I have other tools for playing with this sort of thing if you want
them. I prepare newsletters commercially and have developed them just
to help myself. I'm the only user of things like my webmonitor that
spits out rfc2822 (suitable for emailing or converting with MaBloss),
so development stopped when it would take more time than it saves me.
They'll not even get packaged until someone wants them.

I hope that points you in the right direction. Really, I only have the
toolkit parts, but each job with this is going to be different, I suspect.
