Log in and click the “Gmail” drop down on the top left.
Select “Contacts” which will open a new window. There you will find your entire contact list on the right and a menu of options on the left (here is where you will find the option to “Go to the old version.”).
Click on the “Labels” drop down.
Click on “Create label” which will open a small input box.
Type in your new group-specific name.
Once you click “OK” you will see your new group under “Labels,” with the option to create another label.
In the field where you would usually type an e-mail address, enter the name of your new mailing list – Gmail will pop up with a box and display that mailing list with a couple of the contacts within it.
Select your mailing list from this helpful pop-up box.
You’ll see your new mailing list in the ‘To’ box at the top of the email.
Create your email as you would like, and when you’re done hit ‘send’. This will send the email to everyone on the mailing list you had selected.
