    Rackspace email link highlighted.
  2. In the Email Accounts section, click the Group Lists link.

  3. If you have multiple domains, select the appropriate domain name. Or, to change domains at any time, click the change domain link.

  5. Enter a unique name for the group list in the Group List Name box. This name will be used to create the email address for the group list.
