Before I get Chipped
let me assure you this is a pro bono
project for a web-community site used by aid workers in the field, and the list in question is active opt-ins to this and only this non-profit service...
That said - my task is to automate the process of sending the weekly email, which at present is done by the administrator cutting and pasting fifty email addresses at a time into his email client's cc field. It's a simple job, as the emails are all on a MySQL db. BUT I've only ever done one-off emailings from scripts,a and I seem to remember hearing that Mail::Sendmail
, my module of choice for these, can break at high volume. I looked at Mail::Bulkmail
, which seems to do what I want, but hasn't had an update for a couple of years, which always makes me wary - is there some reason why it has languished? None of the other mail modules sounded like they did what I want, which is basically to do what Mail::Sendmail does, only reliably for large numbers. This sounds like something I'm only about the millionth person to want to do - do you have a fave module? Or am I wrong to fear Mail::Sendmail will break?
