Don't know how your linux currently handles mail, but see if you can create something like a distribution list and add the requested contacts to the group. If you are unable to do this on the linux, your service provider should definitely be able to accommodate this request.

You should ask your external hosting company to create a "Distribution List" and add all the contact emails aliases to the group.

Ok send them this is an Email.

1. Please could you create a Distribution Group and Add the Following Contacts to the group?
2. Now Attach an Excel or Notepad file with all the Email Addresses that you would like to be part of this group.
