I don't know if you can.  I've only seen this discussed very rarely and a long time ago, but I think that if you go over a limit of recipients for one message, your e-mail provider will block the message as spam.  This will, I hope, be discussed further.  The best thing to do might be to send to perhaps ten people, and then ten more but that may be too low a restriction and you may be allowed to send to more.

Hi Kerryn,
 
Try the following:
This is how I send an email to multiple people using the BCC field.
1. Open a new email.
2. Press Alt + T, for tools, press R, for recipients, & tab 3 times to the address book list.
3. Arrow down or, use first letter navigation, through the list and for each person you want to send this email to, press the keystroke, Alt + B, on each
name you want to send the email to.
4. When you have entered all the names you need, tab several times to the BCC list & arrow down to see if you got everybody.  If you have included everybody
you want, tab to the Okay button and press enter.
5. Now, tab to the subject field, enter your subject, tab to the edit field, put in your message, & send as usual.
 
If you want to use the " To " or " CC " field instead, do steps 1 & 2 but, on each name you want to enter press Alt + T, or Alt + C, for the To & CC fields
respectively.  Then tab to the To or CC list, checkthe names, tab to Okay, & press enter.  Then follow step 5 from above.
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

I'm not sure how many messages you can send at once, as I said, but unless you specifically want people to see others' addresses, you should use the BCC field.  I might be able to tell you how to send mail to as many people from your addressbook as you want at once but I'm not sure if all the details are correct.  You can experiment and see if you have problems. 
 
I did Google searches but I didn't find anything on what I had said but even so, it might be a good idea to limit the number. 
 
In Outlook Express, do you have the list of addresses shown so you can tab to the list?  If so, start at the top of the list, hold the shift key down, and down arrow a number of times.  Say you want to send fifteen copies of the message.  Make sure you know what address you stopped on.  Press enter.
As I recall, all the addresses will be in the to line in the message that opens.
When you are in the to line, I think you will be there when the message opens, use control a to select all the addresses. 
Then use control x to cut all the addresses to the clipboard.  If you already have the bcc field available, tab to it and paste with control v.  You have now moved all the addresses to the BCC field. 
If it isn't available, shift tab until you get to a button that says show CC and BCC fields.  Press the space bar.
Now tab until you get to the BCC field and paste the addresses.
Shift tab back to the to line and write your address.
 
People will see your address in the to line and you will get a copy but they won't see the other addresses.  The reason you should put your address there is because some e-mail servers won't send a message unless something is in the to line.  Using your own address, which is already in the from line, doesn't tell anyone anyone's address except yours, which is already available to the recipients.
