mdigest and my hosting provider

Just a quick FYI - my hosting provider has apparently instituted some new anti-spam rules and they have started killing my mdigest script:

Users may not, through a cron job, CGI script, interactive commands, or any other means, take the following actions:
Send out mail to more than 25 addresses in one batch, whether sequentially or in parallel. Such batches must "sleep" for at least three seconds between each delivery attempt.
So you just need to setup your mailer to send outbound messages in batches of 25 every 3 seconds, and that would be within our policy.

Not sure if it's worth updating to make this configurable... I'll modify my copy to work, but wanted to send a heads up that it may affect others too.

All times are EDT. The time is now 11:05 pm.
