Your REGEXP can be really simple. In the Topics section of the Admin 
page, enter some keywords for your REGEXP, , like ORG. Then, when you 
want to send a message only to those that are subscribed to the 'ORG' 
topic, include as the first line of your message, either:

Subject: ORG


Keywords: ORG

Remember that a subscriber needs to be subscribed to the Topic in order 
to receive these messages. Any subscriber that is not subscribed to any 
topic will receive ALL messages.
