What software would you recommend? Is there a good way to do this without using "packaged software" (other than the bcc: method?)


If by "packaged" you mean "commercial, you hafta pay for it" then the answer is yes.

It sounds to me like you want to run mailing lists. The two classic mailing list management software packages out there are Majordomo[1] and Listserv[2]. Listserv comes in a "lite" free version, as well as a commercial "pay" version. Majordomo is completely free.

Of the two, I have experience with Majordomo. It's very robust, though it's not exactly easy to setup. To run it, you'll need your own server or you'll need to find a hosting provider that offers Majordomo service to their users.

There is a web-based front end called "MajorCool"[1] that can be used to administer Majordomo. I haven't used it but it sounds great.

HTH!
