(disclosure--can't even spell mail gurew)

This looks like a job for a mail list manager, eg. mailman or
courier-mlm.  One of the exim/mutt experts can tell you whether exim or
mutt supports address book groups.  If either does, then a message to
the group would go out to each member with the group name in the To:
line, much like a mail list or what you're looking for with bcc's.
