Set field to multiple values based on another field

Im working on refining my existing email/messaging system in one of my databases and i'm a bit stuck.

 

We have 2 simple tables:

1. Messaging

2. Users

 

On the messaging table, there is a To field which is a popup list of all users with a status of available (Value list based on Users table, username and status fields). This works great and will send a message to the selected user.

 

What i would like to do is take things one step further and instead of sending the message to one user, send the message to all users that have a status of available.

 

I'm stuck on how to calculate this. Ideally (if possible) i would like to have the Messaging::To field automatically have all "available" users in it at any given time and update automatically if a users status changes to or from "available"

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
