Did the member change her email address through Account (top right corner) on the group homepage?

 See https://groups.io/helpcenter/membersmanual/1/understanding-groups-io-accounts/setting-account-preferences-and-viewing-account-information

If this doesn't help, more info needed. Perhaps it is as simple as a typo in her email address.
You can check a member's activity

- https://groups.io/helpcenter/ownersmanual/1/reviewing-the-group-s-activity-log/reviewing-member-activity

From Admin, Activity, choose Member Activity, then use the dropdown menu to choose Changed Email. Click on Search.
Double-check the email address is correct.

The only obvious answer is that when she tries to reply, the reply is being sent from a non - registered email address.

Q1: Is she receiving emails from Groups.io on her new address?

Q2: Does she get an error message from Groups.io when she tries to reply?

Q3: If the answer to Q2 is yes, what does the error message say?

A pedantic point, perhaps, but Groups.io does not "won't let her send it". The message may not turn up in your group but that is not the same thing!

Q4: Have you looked at your Activity Log to see what is reported there?

Q5: If yes, what does it say?

       If no. then please try that and report back here.

Ask her to check the address from which her reply emails are being sent just to verify that they are being sent from the registered address. If she is sending from an incorrect address then something is happening (or not happening!) at her end.

Chris

Er, yes. Earlier in your post you included the following:

I set the group to "Announcement-Only Group/Only Moderators are allowed to post".

The answer is therefore that anyone you want to be able to post has to be a Moderator. No other setting will achieve what you want.

So it would be

Or a version of these, with or without any caps. 
No spaces in any versions. No other punctuations.

Re: How to convert email messages to mboxrd format to upload to Groups.io? #mbox

What I can't figure or find out is, how to convert email messages from a YahooGroup that you have since the Get My Data download into the mboxrd format that Groups.io requires
I don't use Apple, so this is only based on info from the 'net. You should be able to export from Apple Mail to an mbox file, but I don't know for sure if it's mboxrd as needed. You should be able to open it in a text editor to verify the formatting. Once it's in the proper format, you'd need to append it to the data download file, creating one big file to be imported.
I don't believe it needs to be "one big file":

I have the YahooGroups GetMyData download for a YahooGroup that finally has agreed to move to Groups.io. Its nearly 18,000 messages are in 10 mboxrd files (all are 10.5 or 10.6 MB, except the latest which is 691 KB).

This is consistent with the GetMyData downloads of my YahooGroups that were migrated to Groups.io in June 2018.

Apple Mail (and I understand other email clients) easily Import those YahooGroups GetMyData downloaded files to display messages the same way all messages are.
However Apple Mail seems to Export in the default mboxo format...


All messages since 2019-12-29 (the last in the 2020-11-27 dated GetMyData download) from this group are still individual emails.

Online searches for: How to Export email messages in mboxrd format
only yield:
explanations of what mboxrd is vs the default mboxo format, or
how to Import email messages in mboxrd format

Doesn't anyone know how to do this?
Or can recommend a tool, app, or service?

I've asked Mark at <support@groups.io>, but no answer yet...


Help would be appreciated,
Michael


Re: PROBLEM: Setting Posting Privileges for Announce-Only Group

Here's Help page info about Announcement groups:

Announcement-Only Group

 

Select this checkbox if your group is to be an announcement-only group rather than a discussion group. Only moderators will be allowed to post messages to the group.

Example: Groups.io Updates is an announcement-only group.

You said you put the individuals who you wish to be able to post as override. 
No, change them to moderators. In some groups, including this one (GMF), we are all moderated including group owners and moderators.

See instead: https://groups.io/helpcenter/ownersmanual/1/managing-moderators-and-additional-owners/making-a-member-an-owner-or-moderator?single=true

The group name may be used by a group that has not chosen to appear in the publicly accessible list of groups. 
Or the name you have chosen may not follow the rues:
  • The Group name must be 34 characters or less and cannot contain spaces, pluses, periods, or underscores. (length verified Mar 8, 2020)
 See Help also:
  1. Note: 
  • The name cannot contain spaces, plus signs, slashes, periods, or underscores. (Hyphens are allowed.)
  • It is possible to change this name later but be aware that renaming an existing group has repercussions. (See¬†Renaming groups.)

PROBLEM: Setting Posting Privileges for Announce-Only Group

JamesIngram.net
 

Subject:  Setting up a public announcement group, with just a few “Announcers"

PROBLEM: I can't seem to find the right combination of settings to do this.

I want to set my public announcement group so that ANYBODY can join to just RECEIVE messages (with no posting privileges), but only a FEW designated¬†‚ÄúAnnouncers‚Ä̬†have privileges to SEND messages.

=============
WHAT I DID:
=============

* In the Group's Settings > Spam Control area:

I set the group to "Announcement-Only Group/Only Moderators are allowed to post".

~~~~~~

* Then, for one of the members for whom I wanted to give Announcers privileges:

In that member's "Posting Privileges" area:

I set that member's permissions to "Override: not moderated" setting.

PROBLEM:  But when I tried to send a message using that Announcer's email address, it was REJECTED with the message "This is an announcement group and you do not have permission to post to it.".

QUESTION 1:  There does not seem to be any combination of settings available, to have a just few Announcers, and many “receive only" members ???
  • ¬†(I don‚Äôt want to give the Announcers Moderator privileges, because a lot of them have no idea what they‚Äôre doing.)
QUESTION 2:  Am I missing something obvious ??


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MORE FYI COMMENTS:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the previous Yahoo group (pre Verizon disaster), I recall just simply setting the Yahoo group to "Announcement Only", and then changing the¬†few¬†designated Announcers to "Override, this member is not moderated‚ÄĚ -- and that worked fine.

(The previous Yahoo group was https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/railnet , and the new group is https://groups.io/g/railnet .)

Re: Fw: Announcing the Shut Down of Yahoo Groups

Sandy Kozinn
 

I'm a moderator. I got the information here, then went to my group page and saw the notice there. No email to me.

I immediately wrote the existing membership, telling them where to move. They will or they won't. I will now remove their shortcut from my computer. The end. It was great when it was great, and then it became a horror.

Results for search of "Bounced" member does not give me results. Goes to another page altogether.

coprosowner
 

Hello,
I have a member who is reapplying to the group.  He appears as a "Past" member but had a me.com address so I thought maybe he was bouncing and never replied and eventually we rejected him.

I did a search of bounced emails for the particular time frame he was rejected (Feb 27) and when I hit the search button the final screen I was taken to was all of the Groups I subscribe to.  Not the results of the bounce search.

Possible bug?

Thanks

If you want to eliminate the possibility of Yahoo doing away with accounts themselves, I would recommend is to get a new address, at Gmail for example, and start changing your address over.

Re: What's your experience with "Content flagged as objectionable"

Thank you Duane and Chris for your input. It's been more than a day and I haven't heard anything else yet. I think I will continue to ignore it. I haven't found any more hints as to who that person really is, if he's not who he says he is!

Perhaps I'm a bit very cynical, but IMHO if someone joins and raises a complaint almost immediately then I suspect that a troublemaker is on the loose. Has he provided enough detail for you to be able to refute his assertion? If not then ask for more detailed reasoning.

"Misrepresentation" of what, exactly? It can be argued that if someone states something that is wrong then that may be a genuine mistake which someone else is at liberty to correct. Saying something in error is not really misrepresentation unless the error is wilful. At the same time the word misrepresent only appears once in the ToS, specifically in the phrase or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity; has he backed up his accusation in any way whatsoever?

And on what basis does he claim that you have not let other peaceful messages on the topic through?

This may be an occasion where you need to blow the dust off the ban hammer...

Re: Fw: Announcing the Shut Down of Yahoo Groups

Todd Mason
 

I have both memberships in several bitter-end YGs and am officially the moderator/owner of two lists which have been dormant but have not been shut down, and I didn't receive the email till it was forwarded here.

So, no, Verizon didn't do a good job of getting the message out. They rarely do a good job of anything with consistency.

One problem with Face Book groups is it's basically using their messenger program on Facebook and can you imagine all them people in on group chat room at same time typing message's as Facebook don't use or have an e-mail set up that I know of and have been on Facebook for a couple of years and hated their group chat rooms
