Ideally, I would like to send an email from, but that email does not actually exist. However, it can be a distribution list in our system, meaning that someone could email but we could not email from I am therefore wondering if the sender email needs to be an active email address?

Hi Katye -- Great question! The sender does indeed need to be an active email address and one that the subscribers signed up to hear from. This could be a generic domain address like, but it needs to be able to receive emails.
