Okay, now we have a working version for the bulletins function.
Thank you so much, Chris, for all the assistance.

My colleague who is familiar with perl has helped out and here
are the changes that should be made to the file you posted:

IMPORTANT: I use perl v5.6.1 on the system I am running this on.
           I have not tested with v.5.8

1. ADD use GDBM_File; at the top of your perl script

2. Substitute:

my $r = "$req->{local_part}@$req->{domain}";


my $r = $req->{local_part} . '@' . $req->{domain};

3. Substitute

tie(%rr, 'GDBM_File', $recips, &GDBM_WRCREAT, 0600);


tie(%rr, 'GDBM_File', $recips, &GDBM_File::GDBM_WRCREAT, 0600);

Whenever responding, please, put your response _under_ the original (previous)
posting/message(s), not above them. This is the basics of Netiquette.
Also, remove unneeded fragments of previous message(s), especially any
"commercial" adverts. It's really ugly, space-wasting and hard-answerable
to have all that junk nested a couple of times. Thank you.

Practically all the major technological changes since the beginning of
industrialization have resulted in unforseen consequences ... Our very
power over nature threatens to become itself a source of power that is
out of control ... Choices are posed that are too large, too complex,
too important and comprehensive to be safely left to fallible human beings."
    --Herman Kahn and Anthony Wiener as quoted in Wired 5.06 (page 110)
