How do I send to more than one person?

If you want to send the same message to George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, you could type

% zwrite gwashing alincoln
and then type the message as usual. Each would think that the message had been sent to him alone, unless you tell them in the message ``I'm sending this to both of you.''

But what if you want to send messages to all the presidents, and you don't want to leave out any? The answer is simple - Zephyr has what is called an instance.' You can send a message to everyone ``subscribing'' to the instance ``presidents'' by typing

% zwrite -i presidents
