Re: rumours about demise of Yahoo Groups -
I am looking at Groups.io (firstname.lastname@example.org)
they claim to be able to transfer all data ( inc messages, photos, files to their servers.)
you will all ( except bouncers) get an invitation to join the new group when it goes live.
if you don't, go to the group and join anyway!.
i will then stop all mails from this group when the transfer is successful and try to backup at home. Finally i will leave a forwarding address here, and make the group view only.
