Bulletins are 'Super' messages.  Each Bulletin has a text and a subject
on programmer entry points.  FileMan sets up code that will issue
a bulletin automatically when the special cross reference type is
created.  In either case the parameters that go into the text and/or
the subject make each bulletin unique.
just like a normal message.  But embedded within either the subject or
the text can be variable fields that can be filled in with parameters.
There is also a standard set of recipients in the form of a Mail Group
that is associated with the bulletin.
Bulletins are processed by MailMan either because of a special cross
reference type of FileMan or because of a direct call in a routine.
The interface for the direct call is described in the documentation
