Just as a completely irrelevant aside -- be careful what you name
things, since there are people out there with really stupid anti-spam
systems that look at words like "bulk" and "mail" and say "oh! it
must be spam!"
No, I'm serious. In fact, majordomo admins are probably familiar with
a delivery tool called bulk_mailer. there are a few sites out there
that are really clueless that bounce mail because they find
bulk_mailer in a Received line, and assume it's spam. Which is why my
copies of bulk_mailer now identify themselves in the Received lines
So be very wary naming things that might even remotely have reference
to things someone might remotely consider related to anything spam.
Just to be safe.
