So I posted a few weeks back, asking how to send out emails to a group, without searching for each name individually. I wasn't able to find any answers, but did find a few people in the same boat as myself. So, I've stumbled across the answer: Contacts Groupu. I pulled it from the market, and it syncs with the groups you have in your Google Contacts. When you go to view a group, you can toggle to "check all", then hit email and and watch it plug each email address into the "to" field within the native Gmail app. I've only used it once so far, but so far so good!
