I have created a Google Group to post announcements that will go out to members by email. It is free to join. You will need a free Google account to join the group.
Reply: Reply to the email instead of clicking the 'Join This Group' button.
It does not matter whether you type in a message or not.
This method guarantees that the email address you used initially will be the one to which my announcement emails go.
If, instead, you click the 'Join This Group' button and you are logged in to Google, the address for that Google account will be used even if it is different from the email that you used for the request to join. Confusing!
Success: A new email will be sent to confirm your membership.
You are added to the group with the default setting that sends you an email copy of all postings. The only postings will be from me!
It is not necessary to view the group's postings. You will be getting an email copy of the messages that I post. I am the only one who can post to this group.
To unsubscribe: Each email from the group contains a link at the bottom to automatically unsubscribe. You must be mailing from the account that you used to subscribe with.
Click a topic and dive right in.
