When working from the Inbox, you can select all Observers or single Observers.

How do I send a message to all course users in the Inbox as an instructor?

How do I send a message to a user in a course in the Inbox as an instructor?

If you're a Canvas admin or you would like to collaborate with yours, there's some code that makes it easier to add Observers from other message options in Canvas. Messaging Observers of Students in Canvas‌.
