Just curious

Eric Johnson
 

As a matter of curiosity, where or when has Yahoo said they were "cutting off" service? All I recall is a notice that said on Dec 15th (or was it the 14th) that they would stop the uploading process for related files, photos and that kind of material. They never said email would stop as I recall their notices. Correct?

Except that Yahoo is the email support for AT&T. In fact AT&T has announced "vast improvements in email" which may be the source of the changes in Yahoo group support. Dunno.

I'm a network administrator and I'm telling anyone who will listen to leave Yahoo and either go to Gmail or Outlook. If Yahoo can dump Groups the way they have, I surely wouldn't trust the future of email services.

Re: NEW MEMBER REQUESTs--is there a way to require them write WHY they want to join?

Hello,

You can do this through Groups.io.  Scroll down the left side under Admin>Settings>Member Notices.Pending Subscription as type.  Type in whatever message you wish to post.  Be sure and click at the end of the page to save the posting and make it active.

When the group I own used to be on Yahoo, we had a requirement that they state why they wanted to join. It helped to a degree to weed out the wrong people. Can this be set up in IO??

Speaking only for myself, a large percentage of what I know has come from members.  Yes, I do spend time, often too much, verifying things to make sure we have the latest/best/correct information available when questions arise, but in many cases I wouldn't have even thought of looking until someone mentioned a particular situation.  Because Mark has been so responsive to change requests and improvements, it can be difficult to keep up with him sometimes!

Re: transfer@groups.io doesn't go through

Teresa, FYI I got the same error you did three or four times and then one time it just worked and it all went quickly after that.
I paid and initiated the transfer yesterday morning, and it has now completed.

I tried typing it in manually rather than cut and paste, logging out/back in. I don’t know that these made any difference, and that it isn’t just yahoo being glitchy. But in any case, getting that error doesn’t mean it won’t eventually work.

Chris, I'm only reading mods at the moment too, which is not a denigration of anyone elses' knowledge or ability, and I don't think Sandi meant her comments in any derogatory way.  Those of us who come from yahoo gmf have relied on Shal's extensive knowledge of yahoo's glitches and work arounds for years, since neo actually, we've learned to depend on him and trust his knowledge.  Experience counts, and his is the longest and most in depth of anyone's, at least since i've been around.  Mods here are excellent, I take nothing away from any of you, and some members here have extensive experience on .io, everything helps.
Like Sandi, I'm more dependent on the guidance of "experts," it make sense to me.  I know we all appreciate all the input we can get, and the experiences and difficulties of others to learn what to do and what not to do.  You all have "kicked the tires" so for me, are the most helpful in learning the new platform.

No.  As it says in the instructions, send the invitation to transfer@groups.io  No other characters needed.  Yahoo can be very stubborn about giving errors, but it will eventually work.

Transfer@groups.io should work. Did for me. It’s legitimate. @.iogroups is nonsense as an email address afaik. I don’t think it’s got a .com equivalent.

Possibly the notification captured the spelling she entered when accessing the web site to request membership, and the activity log captured the email address that actually responded to the confirmation request that Groups.io sent to her.

I have sent her the GMF wiki link and instructions on both changing her email address and on creating an alias. The group and her member activity logs confirm she has only one GIO account and that she can access our group under the email address she joined under. The problem is confined to her not being able to reply to our group by email which seems to be tracked down to her "forgetting" to add the extra dotin her email address when she applied to join our group m

Sandi; while not denying Shal's extensive knowledge and experience in any way (ditto other Owners/Moderators) the GMF functions by all its subscribers pooling their knowledge and experience and sharing it with others when any query arises. The entire operation would collapse if those with queries only accepted answers from owners and moderators.

You probably didn't intend your post to mean that responses from non - owners/moderators are by definition of lower value, but you came rather close to it.

Oops, I'm sorry. In my skimming I missed that it was referring to yahoo groups and not this one. I will see what my moderating abilities are. I don't know that that is the problem, but who knows.

I am the "owner".

I paid the yearly for premium.

I "invited" and receive this repeatedly:

The following email addresses had errors:
