Here's a script I use to manage a small mailing list.
REBOL[ Title: "ATW Script Mailing List (atwscripts.r)" ]
; - Load mailing list
atwscripts: make block! load %atwscripts.txt
; - Setup Internet mail
set-net [ [webmaster--wxxi--org] fc.wxxi.org ]
; - Setup Header
atwheader: make system/standard/email [
From: "Assignment: the World <[thusted--wxxi--org]>"
Subject: "ATW Script for this week"
Organization: "Assignment the World - WXXI Online"
; - Send it
send/header atwscripts read %atwscript.txt atwheader
What I'm sending out is saved in a plain-text file - "atwscript.txt",
and the list of recipients is another plain-text file -
- just a list of [whomever--whereever--com's].
At one time I used the bulk mail refinement, but AOL bounced to many
messages that way.
