The goal is to send emails to a group of members of a website. Yahoo and 
perhaps others have spam protections in place where they delay the 
sending of the emails which causes a browser timeout. One way around 
this (found with some experimenting) is:

   sleep 15;									  Send1Email($_);

With or without the sleep 15, the browser is going to time out. So I 
thought I would send the success message first (containing a link to 
enable the user to return to a menu) and then let the server slowly send 
all the emails.

This timing works in my computer with its Apache.
