We have two plugins in the Purple Plugin Pack
( that address this.  One is
called Group Message, and it allows messaging everyone in a single group.  The
other is called Broadcaster, and it allows messaging everyone on your buddy
list.  Both plugins are contact-aware.  Neither plugin builds by default, nor is
either plugin included in any of our binary distributions, however.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
