Postman

Postman Icon Postman is a command-line utility for batch-sending email.

Features

  • Fast, templated, bulk emails
  • Reads template attributes from CSV
  • Works with any SMTP server
Why this over cat | sed | sendmail < bcc distro_list?
  • Supports both text and HTML parts in emails
  • All of the power of templates in Go (conditionals, etc)
  • Some SMTP providers will complain if there are too many emails in BCC (generally >1000)
  • Sends emails concurrently
