Creating a local email via JIRA


Good Afternoon,

I want to avoid the process of creating a project email and adding users to it. What I'd like to do is create a group, add users to the group, and if possible, here's the tricky part, create a local project email via JIRA, so users can send an email to the project email, and the users be notified.

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration!
