  • In the Category field, enter a unique and descriptive name for the category. This name is what you will select when sending a message to this group of email addresses.
  • In the Description field, enter a brief description of the category. The description usually outlines the purpose of the email category in greater detail.
  • If you would like the new category to be displayed on email sign-up forms and allow visitors to the live site to add themselves to the category's subscriber list, select Yes from the Display on Sign-Up Forms dropdown list.
  • Click Save.
