Dear Anthony,

[I've put this back on the list, because others know far more about *nix and email 
than I do]

BTW: people will respond more readily if you include a reassurance that you are 
emailing a 'membership' list or
its some sort of client opt-in situation - not spamming!

There are differences between the handling of email on a *nix server (cf a Windows 
box). Regardless of your
Win98 client, the server is Unix and that's what's important.

In the php.ini file [mail function], do you have the sendmail_path set correctly? I 
assume you do, because of
what you have said elsewhere, but just for info, what does it look like?

> 2 - Yes. The script works if the # of e-mails is small.

Do you know which email server package is in use? - again, just for info.

Throw in an EXIT; immediately before the end of the loop, and see if you can get the 
first msg out!

I've re-read your first msg, and the "URL not found" part. Are you sure there's no 
server error, or typo
involved? I must admit I was expecting to see a time limit exceeded message!

Because you are using Unix, you should assign the result of the mail() call somewhere, 
and inspect it - you may
be getting back some illuminating errmsg from the email server interface.

It may be that you are overloading the PHP mail() to sendmail interface with rapid 
looping - others with
practical experience should comment here. There are a couple of strategies.

Hope we're getting closer to a solution!
