Pre-populate Direct Message List


I am looking to see if it is possible to pre-populate the Direct Message list of any new user either with a fixed list of other users or with all other users on the server.

Alternatively does anyone have a custom nav pane written that achieves the same goal that they are willing to share? Ideally it would also have the ability to group by a custom property (Department) but at this point I would settle for just getting the list populated.
