Usage

  • Text of the mail is in mail.txt, first line is the subject, second line should be empty, starting from third line is the body
  • mail addresses of recipiens are in recipients.txt, one address per line
  • config.yml contains your smtp account data, see config.example.yml for an example
  • dependencies are handled by bundler, so you should do gem install bundler and bundle install to get required gems

When everything is set up, run

ruby mailer.rb

Features

  • sends mails in batches of 20 addresses per mail
  • uses bcc to not disclose email addresses to others
  • validates addresses and skips invalid ones
  • saves remaining addresses in a textfile in case of fatal errors while sending
