What is a listserve? • What is a listserve? – – – • A listserve (aka newsgroup) is basically an email distribution list. A listserve enables subscribers to communicate with each other through one email address. There are many free newsgroups (e. g. Yahoo, Google, etc). The Mcnally and Cheney Trail NW Groups use Yahoo! Groups. The Mcnally and Chaney Trail listserves were a key source of real-time information during the Station Fire. Altadenablog. com What is a Yahoo! Group? – A Yahoo! Group is any group — your family, friends you see every summer, business associates, your book group, etc. — that uses Yahoo! Groups to privately share email, info, images, ideas and more — on the web. – If you have a yahoo email account, you can utilize the additional features of the newsgroup (e. g. add/post calendar items, event reminders, photos, files, links, etc). – The Mcnally Listserve is a Yahoo! Group. • How much does it cost to create/join a Yahoo! Group? – There is no cost to creating/joining a Yahoo! Group. • Do I need any special software to use Yahoo! Groups? – No, nothing special. To subscribe to Yahoo! Groups, all you need is Internet access and an email address.
Joining a listserve • How do I join Yahoo! Groups? – You can create a new Yahoo! Group at groups. yahoo. com – Yahoo! Group info at: http: //help. yahoo. com/l/us/yahoo/groups/original/members/index. html – To join an existing Yahoo! Group, submit a request by emailing <groupname>[email protected] com. – The moderator can also manually add you to the existing Yahoo! Group. • Do I need a Yahoo! email address to use Yahoo! Groups? – No, you can use any email address you'd like. Keep in mind that your email address will be visible to the owner/moderators of the groups you join. If you post a message, other members of the listserve group will receive your email. Make sure you use an email address which you don't mind disclosing to them. – Please note that if you are using a non-yahoo email address, you will not be able to utilize the additional features of the newsgroup (e. g. add/post calendar items, event reminders, photos, files, links, etc).

Groups? – If you post a message — which sends each Group member an email — your entire email address is shown in the "From: " field, just as if you were sending them email directly. My email address is being revealed – In email messages that member receive, your email address will display in full to all members who receive the email (just as if you sent the email directly to each member).
