hello and thanks for reading this,
i am a computer volunteer for the goodwill rescue mission in newark,nj www.grmnewark.org

i tried to find out via the faq and list archives but i could not find an answer to the following

we need to be able to send out a mail list to about 5000 donors.
our isp allows an unlimited number of outgoing emails but each email can have upto 50 email

can i get mailman send out 100 emails with 50 users each?

can i get mailman to send out 5000 emails one by one?
if so, can i throttle the email per minute?

also, i do not need the overhead of forcing people to 'join' the group.
i want to just have some kind of flat file database with the list of people the mailing should goto.
is this doable?
