in thread writing a basic bulkmailer

Yea, sorry. You are of course completely right.
After posting this node, i took Mail::Bulkmail home with me and dug into the code, and i am extremly impressed on how clean and nice it is, so i'll take that route. I blame the lack of caffeine. :-)

but i still have that question about daemonizing: after forking and closing STDOUT, IN and ERR, apache does 'let go" of the CGI script's child process, but in perlipc it says something about POSIX::setsid. what does that exactly do, and is it required?

thanks for the wake-up call. This node was really kinda superfluous.
