An email list is like a mailing list - the group is comprised of the email addresses of its members, but Google Groups also have their own email addresses. You can set the email list group so that anyone, group members, or only some group members can email (a.k.a. post to) the group.

Using just the one email address for the group lets you easily communicate and collaborate with all group members: send email, create calendar events, and share your content (including Google Drive content, Sites, and Calendars) with group members. If you plan to use a Google Group to send a lot of emails, be sure to check out Google's Group sending limits.
