Today I wrote a script to send all users about their account Info.
There were about 500 users. But in the middle, error messages came
"Resource temporarily unavailable"

So the mail is reached only to small group of users. I am wondering
why this happens.
The mail will be queued for another attempt, if you have injected all
these into local sendmail.
you are essentially calling 500 instances of /bin/mail?
anyway that calls the local sendmail.
do a "mailq" and see - the rest of the mail will be queued for later
delivery I guess.
