Here's a suggestion:  post to the seperate lists seperately.  I see by the
message headers that you use pine, so it isn't that much extra work.
The steps would be:

1) Send the message to one list

2) go into the sent-mail folder (or what ever you called it)

3) forward the message you just created to the next list, editing out
   forwarded message info (if necessary)

4) wash, rinse, repeat.
