Do you use a I am not sure about the question. If I send to an email list, it's an address in BBDB. So I ``invoke'' BBDB (M-x bbdb) and give it the name of the entry (say org-mode). That's analogous to send to a person: If you remember the name (or part of the name), you find the entry, send then compose an email ("m") on the entry. Tab-completion may help. If the question is: how do I send an email to all members of my chess club or drinking buddies? If you have added some field to persons of that circle (like "bridgeclub" or "drinkingbuddy", then you invoke bbdb with that match, and then there is a possibility to send an email to /all/ members of a matching list.
