Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This seams like a weird request, but I need it for work. About every other month I get a list of e-mails that I must send promotional messages to. Normally I would just copy and paste in Thunderbird and send em through my own mail server, but my boss doesn't want anyone to see the other e-mails the messages were sent to. I can't send the messages one by one (there are about 2000 e-mails I have to have sent in like a week! I just started the job and the last guy had a lot of time to kill)
Is there some way or a program I can use to send out one e-mail to thousands of people at once? I've got the e-mail in standard text format seperated by a <CR> and the e-mail must be sent in HTML format.
I'm running eXtremail and I have others running regular old sendmail. Using Slackware 9.1.
Now, the big thing that makes this anoying. This place does NOT host their own mail server or website (yet). and I've got to make it look like the e-mail came from us or else most people will trash em, and the boss will be very very mad.
Please, any help for me right now is good help! Thanks!
did either of you notice that i answered his question, and that he doesn't appear to be a spammer?
2000 emails is a drop in the bucket for a spammer, and some people do have legitimate reasons for sending so many out. Haven't you ever managed a mailing list, or a Linux User Group, or software project?
if BCC answered his question, then he isn't spamming. give it a rest.
It's true, I'm not a spammer, this is a true business mailing list. I hate spammers and I hope that anyone to receives this e-mail doesn't get pissed off (because if they get it they are going to get a discount for shopping here). I work for a large bridal company and the e-mails are only for those who are getting married soon.
BTW, thanks again, I did a test run sending an e-mail to several of mine and close friends e-mails and no one else saw the other e-mails. And it's good to see another Slackwareite out there who knows their stuff. I run into many people who use *NIX and all say that slackware was too hard for them, and I laugh at them. I won't go into why... I don't want to start a distro war. I'm just happy to see more and more people using a superior OS every day.
"In the popular eye, the most common form of spam is that delivered in e-mail as a form of commercial advertising."
In case the customers have requested these mails, it's not spam. If they haven't asked for them, it is spam.
