Thank you for the tip.  I then looked at that list of services.  Some of
the websites don't work on GNU IceCat (probably because of proprietary
JavaScript or maybe JavaScript that is libre but lacks license tags).
Others were more promising, specially <>; in
its website I saw no JavaScript, let alone proprietary JavaScript (so it
works great on GNU IceCat and even on Emacs EWW) and they charge US$
40.80/year for a list of 26 to 1000 subscribers.  Still a bit more
expensive in Brazilian reais than I would like.

The smallest list would have ≃ 38 subscribers; the other would have more
than 100.  Anyway, I contacted a friend who hosts the website of my
wife's clinic and asked if he can host the two lists for a small price.
He said he already "has" (I think he meant "rents") a Digital Ocean
server that could host the mailing list.  He is currently busy, but soon
we will talk more about this.
