CDO ASP Web email form question

I have a couple questions in regard to my Web form. What is basically happening is that it is pulling the emails from a database and BCC'ing a message to all of them. The mailing list at max would be 600 members.

Here are my questions:
1. I would like to set it up to handle attachments (at least 4)

2. Is this setup to handle HTML (for the body) and use the Reply-To field properly?

3. Is it the best way to code a CDO form? I want as less of a chance as possible that this will be detected as spam. Would it be better if I sent the e-mails out individually? If so, how? I don't want it to timeout before all the e-mails are sent.

I'm going to need some help making these changes as I don't know my way around this very well.

Here is the code I am using:

This is the form:
<form name="Email" method="Post" action="results.asp"> 
<table width="428"> 
   <td width="24"><b>Subject: </b> </td> 
   <td colspan="3"><input type="text" name="Subject" size="40"></td> 
   <td width="24"><b>ReplyTo: </b> </td> 
   <td colspan="3"><input type="text" name="ReplyTo" size="40"></td> 
   <td colspan=4>&nbsp;</td> 
   <td colspan=4><b>Send to those interested in:</b></td> 
   <td width="141" colspan="2"><INPUT Type=Checkbox Name="sport" Value="baseball=true"> Baseball</td> 
   <td width="112"><INPUT Type=Checkbox Name="sport" Value="soccer=true">      Soccer</td> 
   <td width="139"><INPUT Type=Checkbox Name="sport" Value="volleyball=true">      Volleyball</td> 
   <td width="141" colspan="2"><INPUT Type=Checkbox Name="sport" Value="basketball=true">     Basketball</td> 
   <td width="112"><INPUT Type=Checkbox Name="sport" Value="softball=true"> Softball</td> 
   <td width="139"><INPUT Type=Checkbox Name="sport" Value="wrestling=true"> Wrestling</td>

   <td width="139"><INPUT Type=Checkbox Name="sport" Value="boardmember=true">      Board Members</td> 

    <td width="141" colspan="2">

    <td width="112"><INPUT Type=Checkbox Name="sport" Value="track=true">      Track</td> 
   <td width="139">
    <INPUT Type=Checkbox Name="sport" Value="administrator=true">      Admins</td> 

   <td width="141" colspan="2">&nbsp;</td> 
   <td colspan="2">&nbsp;</td> 
   <td width="141" colspan="2"><b>Comments: </b> </td> 
   <td colspan="2">&nbsp;</td> 
   <td colspan="4"><textarea rows=9 cols=48 name="Comments"></textarea></td> 
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit Form"> 
I had this code in CDONTS form, but I was told to convert it to CDO, I tried, but I need someone to check it over, and then respond to my questions above.

<%@ LANGUAGE=JScript %> 
var db = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection"); 

var sql = "SELECT email FROM Members WHERE ADMINISTRATOR = True"; 

var sports = Request("sport").Item; 
if ( sports != null && sports != "" ) 
   sports = sports.replace( /,/g , " OR " ); // change each comma to SQL OR keyword 
   sql += " AND ( " + sports + " ) " 
sql += " ORDER BY lastname, firstname" 
Response.Write( "DEBUG SQL: " + sql + "<HR>" ); // just to show what is happening 
var rs = db.Execute(sql); 
if( db.Errors.Count != 0 ) Response.Redirect("default.asp"); 

while ( ! rs.EOF ) 
   Set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.NewMail"); 
   myMail.Bcc= rs("EMail").Value; 
   myMail.From= "webadmin@email.com"; 
    myMail.Replyto= Request("Replyto");
   myMail.Subject= Request("Subject"); 
   myMail.HTMLBody = Request("Comments");

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
