True, but I was under the impression that that was what Jim wanted: a sepa-
rate mailing to each person. After all, he wanted to do multiple commands
for each such person; wasn't that his original question?
Gee, I sure learned a lot from all this; thanks, guys!
One of the reasons for catching individual addresses was for logging
purposes. The mail is actually a confirmation request for potential
subscribers, sent "manually" this way to screen for rogues. The
log keeps track of who and when has been sent the confirm message,
so it seemed a bit easier to do separate operations on each split.
I suppose another approach would be to collect the addresses, BCC
the note to them, then loop through them for the logging.
So many ways... Thanks again,
