All you need to create a group is:
- A group name
- Your email address
- A password
Your group name is central to your group – this name forms part of the group email address which members of your group will use to communicate with the group.
For example, if you’re setting up a group email list for your local book club, you may choose a name like
monday-book-club this name will then form part of the address people use to reach your group i.e.
email@example.com. Since group names’ are key to your group you can’t change them once the group is created (a bit like when you get a new email address from Gmail - you can’t change it).
The other details you enter are straightforward, your email address and a password. These are used to create an account which you then use to log in and administer your newly created group.
