Emailing a non or pending member using the owners email address #addmembers #owner #membershiprequest #membershipapplication

As the owner of a private/closed group, how can I privately email someone who has applied for membership but for whom membership has not yet been granted without using a personal email address?  

More specifically, dealing with an application for membership which appears as "pending" under the members tab under admin.  There is an email address there for the requestor and I'd prefer to send a note to the requestor from the owner groups.io email address instead of with the personal email address tied to my groups.io account.  When clicking on the requesting pending member, the usual page appears allowing the mod/owner to set the various preferences and, at the bottom, approve, decline or "send message."  I wasn't sure what "send message" would do in terms of the privacy and identification of the sender (me in this case).   Thank you.

If you actually click on "Send Message," a new page will display with a message editor. The From: field in the editor is a pick-list...clicking in that field will allow you to choose between your usual, subscribed email address or the group's +owner address. 

Hope this helps,
