BulkMail for NIMS 3.1 on Linux


Bulkmail is a simple utility that will feed NMAP a message to be sent to alarge number of users. It will take two files, the first is the list ofrecipients, the second is the RFC822 compliant message, including a validheader.

It needs to be run on the same system as a monitored NMAP server. It is capable of splitting the number of recipients to allow multiple threads to work on the delivery simultaneously.

This utility is provided as is, with no warranty whatsoever. To the best of my knowledge it performs the task it was written for. If it doesn't do what you want it to do, I will not fix or change anything. I am not responsible for damage. It requires NIMS 2.5 or higher.

bulkmail sender:<address> recips:<recip-file> data:<data-file> bs:<blocksize>

<address> - A RFC822-compliant address (e.g. pdb@novonyx.com)
<recip-file> - A file that containing the intended recipients, separated by <CR><LF>
<data-file> - The RFC822-compliant message (header and body)
<blocksize> - The number of recipients to put in each block. Default 10; should probably be higher.

<recip-file> and <data-file> are pathnames in the form volume:/path. Forexample: bulkmail sender:pdb@novonyx.com recips:sys:/recips.dat data:sys:/message.dat bs:50
