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 
as ulkbbay-ailermay.

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.
