Hi Russell,

A couple of years ago I had the same need. Because I couldn't find what
I needed and didn't want to run a fulblown MLM I wrote a perl script to
do it. It includes the possibility to send attachments. Maybe it is of

Mind you, the site at hat location has not been maintained for a long
time now (I don't work there anymore) and I recently asked them to
remove those pages so don't wait too long. Hopefully I will migrate
those pages to my own server sometime soon when I can find some time.
