I searched the news group and found a script that sends email with
attachments. I modified it a bit to loop through an array sending to
multiple recipients, however, it seems that addresses with a '_' or a
'-' in them will sometimes produce an error on sending.

The script is too long to post here. Here is a link to it:
http://filebox.vt.edu/users/rtilley/public/email.rb

Would someone look it over to see what I'm doing wrong? I'm relatively
new to Ruby, so I'm sure I've just done something wrong. Perhaps it's
how I read the email addresses into an array?

Also, how would I insert a message-id into emails? Our mail server
complains when a message comes through without one and inserts one
itself. No big deal really, it just raises the spam score a tiny bit
(not that I spam)... these are legit emails.

Thanks to anyone who can offer help or advice!

Hi,

insert this line
    smtp.set_debug_output $stderr
after the line
    smtp = Net::SMTP.new(@server)
and examine the debug messages.

insert message-id like this
      wa.write("Message-ID:
<000001c656e2$a8217380$0100007f@localhost>\r\n")
after the line
      wa.write("MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n")

You might want to check out SimpleMail
(http://simplemail.rubyforge.org/).  That's the library I've been
using to send out scripted emails.
