Two ways to access Yahoo Groups
E-Mail access The Yahoo system is
capable of providing e-mail distribution services between you
and other O4SR members. An e-mail sent to the group is distributed to
all other members of that group. Some members find this method results
in receiving large volumes of unwanted incoming e-mail. In this case,
you may prefer to view Yahoo group messages and services
through its Web-based interface.
- NOTE - The footer of each group E-mail
message contains the option to "unsubscribe" from the message group
which your membership completely from the group. We ask that
you please NOT unsuscribe from the Announce group so that you
will continue to receive important notices from O4SR.
Web-based access - The Web access to
the Yahoo groups is similar to a "Bulletin Board", commonly
referred to as a "Forum". Messages generated through the group are
numbered, logged, then "posted" (archived). By accessing the group
through a Web browser, additional features are available such as the
ability to share files, photographs, respond to polls to name a few. (Screen shot of the Discussion group via Web
To access the Announce and Discussion Yahoo
groups via Web browser, a member will first need to create a Yahoo
"profile" and password with which to log in to access the group. A
member can then manage how e-mail messages are deliverd to you:
- No E-mail - You will stop
receiving any e-mail from messages posted to the group. Choose this
option if you prefer to view messages only through your Web browser.
- Special Notices - Receive only
"important" messages designated by the moderator.
- Daily Digest - Up to 25
individual messages are compiled into one daily e-mail.
- Individual e-mail - Every
individual message posted to the group generates a separate e-mail
message to you.
Changing your e-mail delivery preferences does not affect your ability
to view the group via Web browser.
