Thanks for the excellent reply. In fact, the recipients are all bcc'd, so
now I'm a bit nervous that some will never see the mail. I wonder if
emailer chokes in top to bottom order? Then I could put my mail address
at the end to see if everything went through.

I'm working on getting away from emailer for broadcast (see thread a
couple of weeks ago) but am stuck w/ it for a little bit longer.
