    I think you're getting distribution lists and contact grousp confused.

    Distribution lists are only for users on your system. you create these lists, and then you can e-mail them by e-mailing the name of the distribution list @domain.com. So if you create a accounting distribution list you'd e-mail accounting@domain.com

    Contact groups are groups of your own personal contacts you can setup through the regular web mail interface.

    Start typing the name of the contact group on the BCC field (assuming auto-compete is on).

    If you're sending to a lot of accounts & frequently (and you want others to be able to send to a list@domain.com) that calls for a distribution list with the 'can recieve mail' checked.

    You'd have to dump your contacts > and import them into a distribution group via SOAP/Java/CLI.

    *We also 'recently' changed the admin console UI so you can just paste in a big chunk comma or enter separated.
