    Default Distribution list bounce back?

    When creating a distribution list, I'm not clear what the purpose of List Name its function.

    When I send a distribution list, I'm getting a bounce back stating that the list name email address doesn't exist!?!

    If I can't create an account for the list name, how would I create a distribution list so that it wouldn't bounce back?

    Does this even make sense? Does any of it make sense? Cause I don't get it....?

    You don't create an account for the list, you simply create a Distribution List then add accounts to it.

    yes, I did that, but LIST NAME is an email address, correct?
    That is the source of the bounce back, the email is saying the list name email address doesn't exist.

    3. In the List Name field, type the distribution list name to be used as the mail address. The list name cannot have any spaces.
    DistributionListName@Domain.com does not exist.

    Ok, I figured it out...

    CAN RECEIVE MAIL: HAS TO BE CHECKED.

    WHY?

    The email account doesn't exist, so why would it need/have to receive email?

    Some things with Zimbra just don't make any sense...
