I use Mail::Bulkmail 
(http://search.cpan.org/~jimt/Mail-Bulkmail-3.12/Bulkmail.pm) when I need to 
send out any large batches of email.  It's quite fast.  In the event the list 
is extremely large I usually fork to a separate script (passing the necessary 
info to do the db lookup) and then run bulkmail from there but for a list as 
small as 50 you could easily do it with Mail::Bulkmail without forking.

Unfortunately, as far as I know there isn't a catalyst plugin for 
Mail::Bulkmail at the moment.  I would love it if there was, so if anyone 
would like to write one I know I'd greatly appreciate it :)
