Re: Detailed Instructions on How to Conduct a Yahoo Transfer

Hi Bruce,

Thank you for keep this up-to-date and distributing it.

Would it be prudent to state near the top the prerequisite that you must be either an owner of the Yahoo group, or a moderator with both the “Invite and add members” and “Add, remove, and change moderator privileges” privileges? This might save a few folks from spending the $220 only to find out they can’t do the invite. (And then save groups.io from having to process a refund)

Folks -- I haven't posted this in 8 days so I'm probably overdue to do so again. My apologies for the inevitable dupes in your email inbox.

Appended below please find detailed instructions on how to conduct a transfer using the Easy Group Transfer method.

Please note that the way you select an existing transfer for further processing has changed. It used to be a pull-down menu, it is now a list of links.
