About Yahoo! Groups and PNW AES
We use Yahoo! Groups to manage our email list, and to send group emails out. Our group is private, and the only use for it is to
send notifications to our members. No one else has access to it. You can visit the group homepage, but you will not have access to any message traffic unless you are
a group member. Posting is turned off, so message traffic is one-way, outbound only.
Do one of these things:
- Send an email to
our database maven, and make the request. She will send you an invitation.
- You can send email to the webmaster and make the same request. The webmaster will send you an invitation.
- If we send you an invitation, you can then join the mailing list without first creating a Yahoo! group ID (see the link
at the BOTTOM of the invitation you receive). It appears that joining the mailing list removes the necessity of getting a Yahoo! Account.
- Go to
and click the 'Join This Group' button on the right-side of the page, just above the gold AES shield.
- Go to
and click the 'Register' link at the top left of the page. This will lead you thru getting a Yahoo! Account. Then go to the link on the previous bullet point.
If you're nervous about Yahoo!, then consider creating a special email account that would receive any spam that originated to Yahoo!. For what it's worth,
there have been no instances of spamming or other bad behavior reported by anyone on our mailing list. Since the list is closed to posting except by the moderators, outsiders
cannot spam the list.
Managing your subscription
At the right-hand side of the Group Home Page, there is an area titled 'Group Email Addresses' that lists addresses you can use
to do various things: Posting (turned off), Subscribe, Unsubscribe, and List owner.
Be sure to choose the "individual email" option. There isn't that much list traffic, and waiting for enough traffic to make up a digest will result in your missing the meeeting
