Default help with newsletter question

Some background first.
When sending out mass emails for our ski club with more than 20 emails in each it seems to activate the spam filters for many services. So my question is this: If I use a PHP coded script that pulls the addys from a data base or txt file will it generate a unique e-mail to each recipient or a mass e-mail to each? Please be assured that this is for email notices and a monthly newsletter to willing recipients and not for spam purposes. I can supply the script in question if needed but I suspect someone with some experience knows the answer.
Thanks
-Allan

You can code your script to do either. I suggest you figure out why your emails are being flagged as spam and fix the problem. Usually, the negative points about you are easily fixable by setting your email headers properly.


If you have an array of email addresses, you can either concatenate all your users into a single To: field, or iterate over each user and send the email to them individually.


Take care,

Nik
