    You can do it either way, it depends really on the size of your mailing list.

    You can write an ASP page that simply runs through a list of email addresses (from a database or wherever), using CDONTS or some other ASP email component to send emails. I've done this with 2000 addresses at a time, and it took about 2 minutes to run through 'em all.

    If your mailing list is like, 10000 people or something, I'd consider getting in some 3rd party software. I don't know any offhand, but I don't think they're that expensive.

    If you use an ASP page and have it loop, make sure you send one email to one address, otherwise it would probably end up in peoples junk mail folder.

    And to reduce the size of the message. Because if there were 2000 recipiants for example, the header would be huge.
