I've been wanting to use the broadcasts, because people are tired of the vague "For more information, please see the website" for events. Are you typing each email in by hand? I COULD do that... but if there is a more efficient way, that would be better.
Ugh, typing each email by hand would be a major pain.
The way I do this is trivial and takes about 5 seconds. With the list of email addresses on the "are you sure you want to do this" page I just use my left mouse button to select all the email addresses, and then middle click in my BCC: line of my email client which instanly pastes the email addresses without all the html tag junk. Now this is simple because I use the X-Window System, which runs under Linux or most flavors of Unix. I don't know if this will work with Windows or MacOS/X. If you can select and then copy/paste in whatever operating system you have then that should have the same result.
The alternative would be to View->Source and then extract the email addresses from there. Getting all the email addresses from the Registered Users page would work too, but would have more embedded html stuff.
I like doing the top approach because it's fast and clean and I don't have to filter out anything. It will automatically have all the right addresses and I don't have to maintain a separate email list. Maintaining a separate email list would be a nightmare.
