Instant messaging group IMs

Hey all, we use AIM as our main means of communications via Pidgin...I was wondering if there is a way to create some sort of 'group im' .  Example: say I want to send an IM to 'itusers' it sends an im to all the screennames in itusers

Is this possible using my methods above or any other method?

A group messaging function is included in the Pidgin Purple Plugin Pack, although it's not enabled by default due to the potential for abuse (SPAM).

If you want to enable the feature, you'll have to download the Plugin Pack source and build it with the proper switches.
