Don't know about *the* oldest, but one that's quite old and still very active is the TZ mailing list (about timezone rules and their ongoing changes).  This is the list that collects and distributes the data that keeps clocks worldwide showing the correct local time, at least when politicians give more than a few days' notice of a change.

The first message on that list is from Arthur Olson, Mon, 24 Nov 86 19:58:12 EST.  Though retired now he still occasionally contributes.
