    6565Here's the definition::
    6767    send_mass_mail(datatuple, fail_silently=False,
    68         auth_user=EMAIL_HOST_USER, auth_password=EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD):
     68        auth_user=EMAIL_HOST_USER,
     69        auth_password=EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD,
     70        suppress_recipients=False):
    7072``datatuple`` is a tuple in which each element is in this format::
    7274    (subject, message, from_email, recipient_list)
     76If the ``message`` in a particular element of ``datatuple`` is a list or tuple,
     77it will result in a multpart MIME message; the first element of ``message`` will
     78be sent as ``text/plain``, and the second will be sent as ``text/html``.
    7480``fail_silently``, ``auth_user`` and ``auth_password`` have the same functions
    7581as in ``send_mail()``.
    7783Each separate element of ``datatuple`` results in a separate e-mail message.
    7884As in ``send_mail()``, recipients in the same ``recipient_list`` will all see
    79 the other addresses in the e-mail messages's "To:" field.
     85the other addresses in the e-mail messages's "To:" field. To suppress all but
     86a single address (useful for newsletters or mailing lists), use
     87``suppress_recipients=True``; this will use the first address in the "To:"
     88field, and place all other addresses in the "Bcc:" field.
