If it's an alias to all then make sure you BCC the alias and configure your 
mail server to not include a delivered-to field with the address.

In either case (script sending to everyone or alias) it will take huge 
amounts of time to deliver, which is why I wrote maildir-bulletin.  
Delivering to 1000 users on a slowish machine can take 30 minutes.  The same 
machine running maildir-bulletin can do it in well under a minute.
