This kind of thing might work.  Another issue to be aware of is that a 
lot of mail servers have a limit to the allowed number of recipients on 
a single message (as an anti-spam measure).  I know Sendmail (which most 
of the net seems to be using still) defaults to a limit of 50 recipients 
per message.  Many ISPs limit it much smaller (like 15).
