Under the "Basic Settings" section, choose a list name and description, and enter the "From" name and email address that you would like subscribers to see when they receive emails from you. Click "Save Settings" at the bottom.
Note: When you are creating a list name there is a 15 character limit and only letters, numbers, dashes, and underscores ( - and _ ) can be used.
Personalize Your List

Move to the "Confirmed Opt In" section of the "List Settings" (also by clicking in the Gray bar at the top of the page). You will need to edit the Subject line, the Intro section, as well as the Signature part of this message. Click "Save Settings."
