False, Linux is the kernel, the kernel is Linux.

there are a number of databases you can use and there are a number of ways to 
send bulk e-mail.

What are your needs.  What you want could be as simple as a 10 line script in 
your favorite language or as feature rich as the mailman mailing list 
manager..... and plenty of other goodies in between.

mailman is a part of your distribution, you would have to write find or hack 
the script.
