Unfortunately, mailing lists are hard.  You want to by-pass the postage
requirement, but only if the sender is a legitmate sender.  (And how do
you define that?)  How many lists have you been on where a spammer sent
junk to it?

Also, how do you deal with just lists of recipients (as in the Cc line
of this message?)  Do you attach coins for each recipient?
