How to? YahooGroups – A Simple Guide For Newbie

Lot of people might be familiar with yahoo groups but they still don’t understand how to organize the mails received from yahoo groups that they have joined. If you are considering joining lot of YahooGroups please feel free to read this guide. For example how to unsubscribe from certain YahooGroups? How to tweak the option so I could receive only one email per day? Of course you don’t want your inbox full with unread email every time you open it. Like mine! See pics

To make use of this little hack firstly go to login to your yahoo account with your yahoo ID. For your information your yahoo mailing list or yahoo group mailing address is in this format group_name@yahoogroups.com for example michealsoft@yahoo.com . With this address you can simply organize your Yahoo groups without login to http://groups.yahoogroups.com .

How To unsubscribe from group_name@yahoogroups.com ?
Send a blank e-mail to group_name-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com

How to register as a member?
Send a blank e-mail to group_name-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

How to contact the moderator of the yahoo groups?
You don’t know who is the moderator of certain groups. What you have to do is send email to group_name-owner@yahoogroups.com

How to receive only one e-mail per everyday? I am using this to keep my inbox clean.
Send blank email to group_name-digest@yahoogroups.com

How to reject all incoming mail from certain YahooGroups? You still want to be a member but you don’t want to receive e-mail from that group. What you have to do is Send a blank mail to group_name-nomail@yahoogroups.com

If you want to get back full mailing list option just send a blank email to group_name-normal@yahoogroups.com

Your request will be processed automatically by Yahoo except if you want to contact the moderator. Remember to change the group_name to your YahooGroups name. Credit to both Yahoo and Google
