How do I get MMDF to send one copy of a message to many people? (Old Sco Unix)

This is an ancient post with no relevance to modern systems.

You will need MMDF II level 43 for this; it's included in Unix 3.2v4.0 and ODT 2.0 and above, and is available in tls011 for older releases. You will need to add a confstr= entry to your UUCP channel similar to

MCHN    uucp, show="SCO UUCP Delivery", que=uucp, tbl=uuchn, ap=same,
        pgm=uucp, mod=imm, confstr="naddrs=15 maxlen=1024"

naddrs sets the maximum number of addresses per message
maxlen sets the maximum total length of the address

You probably want to set maxlen no higher than 1024 or you may run into a limit in the system. You may also want to configure your badhosts channel similarly.
