Before I screw this up and send out emails to everyone on my server, I wanted to run this by everyone on the list.

I have two questions. First of all, I want to send a bulletin to all mailboxes on the system except for those in my "do not contact" list. Now, I know I need to run the -e flag to exclude email addresses, but should the addresses in that file be in the form [EMAIL PROTECTED] or just username? I only have one virtual domain on the server. I figure having the full [EMAIL PROTECTED] can't hurt, but I just want to be sure I am doing this right before I send out a blanket email. Also, what format should this file be in? Should each entry have its own line, or should they be tab or comma separated?

Secondly, reading the vpopbull man page, it seems to indicate that you can use vpopbull to get a listing of all the mailboxes on the system. If I run vpopbull as follows, will this give me a list of all mailboxes WITHOUT sending them mail:

vpopbull -f filename -v -n

Thanks for the help.
