Ben, how you approach this will depend on how you have the data 
stored.  Let's assume two things:  you have the e-mail addresses and names 
in a database and know how to retrieve and store them into the variables 
$email and $name.  That said, create the body of your text:

$body = "
Dear $name,

Here are recent developments on our web site... etc.

Then use the mail function ( 
to send the letter to the person like this:

mail($email, "Site update", $body, "From:  [EMAIL PROTECTED]");

The next thing you'll probably start wondering is how to send fancy e-mail 
instead of those generic text based ones...  PHPBuilder has an article 
you'll want to check out located here:
