hey guys & girls ;-)
i've got question...need an oppinion of ya, your experience and etc...
I have like 10k mails that i want to send mail to, either an ad or information concerning about something else. i run postfix, how i do that? i've thinking of:
writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (i would use peckomm just for mails that should be distributed -mailed to all my users). then cron job running each minute, or 5 minutes checking if there is file (the mail send to peckomm) in the folder of peckomm, and copying to each of my users' mail directory. that is effective and doesnt generate network traffic, but how do i limit the access to email@example.com, that means i do not want someone that knows (or will find out about this mail) to abuse it to send mail to all my users. two option i have in my head, but not sure if there are better or if they are any good:
1) some sort of password (word generated with an algorithm i'll write it) placed in the body of the message.
i'll be able to verify the password from the script.
2) pgp, both the private and public key would be secret between the script and the one that sends the message to peckomm, so in order to redistribute the message i'll have to know how to decode it (decrypt)...
BTW, it *has* to be automated, a script or something.
:) please advise
