The solution is simple:
First send the message encrypted to the 3 recipients and then send the
message again (this time of course unencrypted) to the last recipient.
Nevertheless, I don't like this because if I receive an encrypted
message I usually don't think that the same message was sent to someone
else in unencrypted form.
Furthermore I don't believe in *safe* lines, especially with email.
