Hi,

What mail server you're running? Sendmail, postfix, other?
For sendmail that comes with RHEL, take a look at this

Regards

I use such script:

mailing
Code:

#!/bin/bash

# "first@,second@" -- one e-mail to all (without spaces)
# "first@, second@" -- each e-mail separately (with spaces)
ADDRESSES="ADDRESSES.TXT"
MAIL="MAIL.TXT"
SIGNATURE="~/.signature"

SUBJECT="This isn't spam 3"

# "first -a second -a third" -- a few attachments
ATTACHMENT=""

REPLY="me@my.own.org"

cat $MAIL > /tmp/mail
cat $SIGNATURE >> /tmp/mail

for address in `cat $ADDRESSES`
do
    if [ "$ATTACHMENT" != "" ]
    then
        nail -s "$SUBJECT" -a $ATTACHMENT -r $REPLY $address < /tmp/mail
    else
        nail -s "$SUBJECT" -r $REPLY $address < /tmp/mail
    fi
done

rm /tmp/mail

To use it you have to prepare ADDRESSES.TXT, MAIL.TXT, and ~/.signature files as well as fullfill SUBJECT, ATTACHMENT, and REPLY variables.
