Hi, I was thinking of a way to improve the speed of an e-mailing script where a bottleneck has arisen because of serial SMTP sending. I'd like to "parallelize" the processing of the address array into 2-4 parallel processes, each sending via SMTP their parts of the array. How would I split processing of the @email_addresses like this? create 2-4 sub-arrays? fork the sending once the sub-array's are populated? Basically I set the e-mail message var's once (body, subject, from) and then do a foreach loop on an array of e-mail addresses, sending the message sequentially. Looking fwd to some Monk-wisdome
