Thanks for the excellent suggestion. We have used this method to send all
the 12 patches. Note that since our mail server went down and came back
up during this process, the mail containing patch3 has appeared twice.
Pls ignore the duplicate.

FWIW, I have found that use of "cat email-01.txt | sendmail -t" on a
Unix system is the easiest way to send a large number of patches.
You simply have to provide a minimal email header, a blank line, and
then the patch content itself, in a single text file.
$ cat > email-01.txt
