Hi melvinbrad20,

Look into phpmailer, it is a very popular emailing script for php:
http://phpmailer.sourceforge.net/

I would also suggest moving the emails into a database, like mysql, but either way is fine.

Also putting the emails in a database, could allow you to update the info so you know which ones have been sent to. So if your script crashes for some reason, you dont send the email out to the same people again.

ie
$query_link=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM my_emails WHERE sent=0");
while($row=mysql_fetch_assoc($query_link))
{
  mail($row['email']........);
  $sql="UPDATE my_emails SET sent=1 WHERE email_id=".$row['email_id'];
  mysql_query($sql);
}
