Hello MM-ers,

I've searched the FAQ but did not find anything. I have the idea though,
only the implementation is the problem.

I am running a few lists and I have been asked to send out an e-mail with
some defined/standard text to a certain list. This text should be sent on
the 28th and on the 3rd of each month.
I am not a member of that list. I know I could explicitly specify my
e-mail address to be allowed to send the message, but I don't want to
appear anywhere ;-) It would be nice if the e-mails containing this
text originated from, say, list-admin.

I was looking at adapting the monthly passwd sending script to do this,
but since I am not python programmer, I decided to seek the help of
programmers. I would like this to be done via mailman's own cron, and
everything to be confined to MAILMAN_HOME.

If anyone is willing to share any such script, I'll greatly appreciate it.
Any pinters are also welcome.
