There are lots of ways to get to the Yahoo Groups "Manage your email addresses" page -- but it shows only the new address, listed as primary, as primary, and doesn't show the old address where it's actually trying to send all the mail. Now, you can Edit membership in any particular group: that shows both the old nonworking address (with the box checked) and the new one (check the box to change it).Great -- so I'm supposed to do that for all 25 or so groups I'm in? After much searching, I finally found an old discussion thread with a link to the Edit my groups page.Scroll down to the bottom and look for "Set all of the above to".
Whether your other email accounts are also Gmail addresses or not, Gmail has you covered.Between email forwarding and Gmail’s Mail Fetcher and Send As features, Gmail is a capable email client.Forwarding ensures email reaches your main inbox immediately.Still, it's a heck of a lot faster than going through all the groups one by one. Meanwhile, Yahoo developers: you might want to take a look at that "More info" page that just gives a permission error.Syndicated on: • Linux Chix Live • Ubuntu Women • Women in Free Software • Graphics Planet • Dev Chix • Ubuntu California • Planet Openbox • Devchix • Planet LCA2009 Friends' Blogs: • Morris "Mojo" Jones • Jane Houston Jones • Dan Heller • Long Live the Village Green • Ups & Downs • Daily BBG Other Blogs of Interest: • Dev Chix • Scott Adams • Dave Barry • Boing Boing Powered by Py Blosxom.
Gmail isn’t just a typical webmail system — it’s a full-fledged email client that can consolidate all your email addresses in one place.
Get all your emails in a single Gmail inbox and send emails from any address.
A while ago I switched ISPs, and maintaining a lot of email addresses got more complicated. But changing your email address turns out to be tricky on some sites.
For example, on Amazon it apparently requires a phone call to customer support (I haven't gotten around to it yet, but that's what their email support people told me to do). I'm in quite a few groups, so when I made the switch, I went to groups.yahoo.com, added a valid address and made it my primary address. Weeks later, it occurred to me that I hadn't been getting any mail from a bunch of groups I used to get mail from.
I went to Yahoo groups and clicked around for five minutes trying to find something that would show me my email addresses.
Eventually I gave up on that, went to one of the groups I hadn't been getting, and saw a notice at the top: Gosh, that's some helpful info, Yahoo!
