Maybe so but at the same time I dont realy think of a webmail client as 
needing such features as that is a more intensive function. I would 
expect a contact manager to do such things or outlook. Also if it is 
realy required you could always write a custom method to do it. We have 
built an interface for user management along with the ability to create 
mailing lists through our website that generates the needed steps for 
the mta to handle such things.
