If there are a lot of addresses at free webmail accounts (esp hotmail)  
then you may find it takes a while to send to them all: they have rate  
limiters to stop you just blasting them with email.

Again with google/yahoo/gmail, if a lot of your recipients mark your  
email as spam, you may find your internal mail server gets blacklisted  
by them, which is no fun at all. But of course, they all said they  
wanted email and you're sending them interesting info, so they'd  
*never* do that...
