Because as i understand the mail() function opens a connection and closes it on every call. That might be of server load concern later on.
But i guess a few hundred emails is going the be allright but one would have to see. Optionally you could work in a cue system of some sort to keep the load down, maybe a delay between loops or something. Otherwise a email class would be good.
I didn't realise that the mail function behaved in that way, but I have noticed its performance to be rather inadequate for large batches of emails, as you say.
