What is the best way to setup something on Exchange 2000 so a user can one email to all recipients?  Something like entering "All Employees" or "All staff" in the To: field and then it would dynamically grab all exchange accounts and know who to send to?

I thought about using an Address List ?  or a Distribution Group?

Distribution Group is the only way to do it.
If you have lots of users and some time then you could do it via nested distribution lists.

Once you have setup the distribution list, restrict who can send to the distribution list to the distribution itself. This will stop an external spammer from using your list.

The ability to dynamically grab all recipients could be leveraged in Exchange 2003 as a feature called query-based distribution groups.  In Exchange 2000, you are kind of stuck with the static options that Sembee mentions.
