I sent a mass e-mail (unsolicited no less) to 75 people about today's not-so-secret project, and in the process, I discovered a feature of PocoMail I wasn't expecting. When I put 75 addressees in an e-mail and tried to send it, PocoMail warned me it "has many recipients and may be rejected by [my] SMTP server."

PocoMail offered to split the addressees up into two or more identical messages, even to the point of sending 75 separate e-mails to one person each.

Playing with the feature a little more tonight, it appears that if I provided a list of 35,000 addressees, PocoMail could send the same e-mail separately to all 35,000. That's too helpful (even though I suspect PocoMail would freeze before sending out a torrent of spam that large).

Rcade,

Billy Maulana here, the "self link" guy from MeFi. I just wanted to let you know that I just send you an email explaining my poor behavior at MeFi and requesting some of your assistance.

I know you're really busy and may not get to all your email so I just wanted to let you know I just did and would appreciate some attention to it. Thank you for your time.

I just sent you an e-mail.
