Mass HTML e-mails, how is it done?
Hi everyone, new here.
I was wondering how those mass e-mails are sent out.
Is it server side technology, if so what language and can you point me to an tutorial or info on how to do it.
Thanks a million everyone.

It might've been done through server side programmig, but most likely then just set sendmail to copy letter to so and so adresses. Any server side lang could do it, only difference is in speed.
And you know I mean that.

Like Al said, it's server side stuff. But if you have no experience on the field I suggest you start from the little things first. Don't go poking spam e-mail around immediately. Buy a good book, for PHP, ASP, or Perl, and start from a and when you've worked your way to p, you can start thinking about the mass mail stuff.

It usually depends on the coder or the need... some people use mailing list managers like majordomo. Others use their own custom scripts.
You can pretty easily code your own in PERL, PHP, Python, Java/JSP (if you can code beans), ASP, C/C++, etc. Just look at other peoples source and learn from that...
Here is a list of links for mailing list managers:
Before install any of them I recommend reading README and INSTALL files if they have them.
Hope this helps...
