Imported List: (displays the imported list name)

- Can only use 1 imported list at a time.
- Can have custom merge fields based on the CSV file column names.
- Used primarily for importing email lists from other sources or importing organization files as NetCommunity does not create lists from org file queries

- Must duplicate template to attach a different list to the template before creating a new message.
