I have a Data Extension with an EmailAddress field connected directly to Contacts via an Attribute Group.

This is the main way I am inserting email addresses into SFMC. I do not currently have a way to update the system email address on the contact.

In the Journey Builder settings, it only allows me to choose the system email address enter image description here

What am I missing here? Why can I not select the EmailAddress connected to the contact via a data extension?

Only Data Extensions linked as a Population will be selectable in this configuration screen. The most straight forward way is to use the email address from the Entry Source DE
