If you're on a UNIX use a Perl script that pipes to sendmail and just ask the user to separate the adresses using commas, eg "steve@aol.com, mike@usa.net".
There are tons of such scripts out there, but if you want to I can post one.

I am using an NT server with IIS.  Do you have one for that platform.  I am not at all familiar with perl, but if it works please post one.  I am really looking for the end result to be a page that has several text boxes that allow the user to enter email adresses.  Then push a submit button and send the message to each of the addresses.  The text of the message the recipients receive should not be viewable by the sender.  Thanks ED.

No experience with NT/IIS, sorry.
I believe that you will get better help in the CGI area so you could delete this question (link below) and repost it there.

Yes, you can download JMail from www.dimac.net.  Install it and you can send the mail via ASP.

Here is the code that you would use:

<%
      Set JMail = Server.CreateObject("JMail.SMTPMail")
      JMail.ServerAddress = "yourmail.address.com:25"
            
      JMail.Sender        = "your email address"
      JMail.SenderName = "Your EMail name"
%>
<% ' This is where you add the recipients... we will use a form
For Each Item in Request.Form
      If Request.Form(Item).Count Then
            For intLoop = 1 to Request.Form(Item).Count
                  User = Request.Form(Item)(IntLoop)
                  If User <> "" then JMail.AddRecipient (User)
            Next
      End If
Next
%>
<%
      JMail.Subject        = "Your Subject"
        JMail.Body       = "You Body text"
        JMail.Priority = 1
      
      JMail.Execute
      set JMail = nothing
%>

I dont think this is what I'm looking for?  Let me explain.  I have a web based email service.  I'd like to get the word out about my site.  As users register for new accounts I want to offer them a chance of notifying their friends of their new account.  I have seen this done on Netaddress.com.  They have a form in the registration process that allows user to enter multiple addresses.  These addresses receive a message notifying them that their friend just received a new emailk account.  I have a sample page I can email you.
