You don't need a mailing list manager.
You have a text file with all your valid addresses, simply write a small
script to parse through the file and BCC all the folks in that list (or
actually send it TO each person - one at a time).
You could use ~mailman/bin/sync_members to sync up a Mailman mailing
list with a text file of email addresses (one per line).
But why go to that trouble when you are just going to throw that list
away after one message?
