Pending Messages Approved Via Web Not posting to Group (or delayed) + No email notification of pending post received
In our groups it seems (as of a day or so ago) that posts that we approve via web are not posting immediately - if at all - to the group. Also to note is that we aren't getting moderator notifications in our email inboxes of these pending posts to be approved. Whereas the ones we receive email notifications for and which we approve via email are posting immediately. I hope this is helpful info to nail the glitch that may be causing this. Thank you for helping us keep Yahoo! Groups great and useful to so many.

I'm having the same problem as mentioned below. If this problem isn't fixed soon, I am going to have to abandon Yahoo Groups.
YAHOO...WHAT'S GOING ON WITH YOU, LATELY?!?...FOR THE PAST WEEK THE WORK THAT I AM DOING, AS A MODERATOR, IS COMING IN 'DRIBS & DRABS' & MANY DO NOT SHOW AT ALL IN THE POSTING AREA...I HAVE REDONE SOME OF THEM, 3 TIMES, AND NOT SEEN ANYTHING...WHERE THE 'H' DO THEY GO?!?...WE, AS GROUP MODERATORS NEED SOME ANSWERS...AND, IF IT IS DUE TO THE VERIZON PURCHASE - THEY NEED TO EXPLAIN WHY THE WORK WE ARE DOING IS NOT APPEARING ON OUR GROUP SITES...I AM SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WOULD NOT APPRECIATE DOING YOUR WORK FOR NOTHING...PLEASE ADDRESS THE CONCERNS OF THE MANY HERE...I AM SEEING AN INCREASING NUMBER OF VERY UPSET YAHOO GROUP MODERATORS...AS THEIR COMPLAINTS FILL MY PERSONAL INBOX FROM YAHOO VOICE...THANKYOU, L.
I've tried four times to post an ad and it hasn't shown on the page yet. I like this page and buy from it often, but I need to sell my own things too and it isn't working.
Seeing same thing in groups I belong to, and one I moderate/own. Some never show, some show late. Not getting some emails to moderator/owners also re pending, hit and miss.

I'm seeing the same thing. Message posted to my group (whether via email or the web interface) are not appearing or being distributed.
The most unfortunate thing is that I discovered this issue when I sent an announcement about a death to the group members and nobody received it!
Yahoo, we need a RELIABLE messaging/groups platform!

Submitted messages to groups for approval are taking a long time to appear in the approval queue, often a couple or more days!
Approved messages from the pending queue are taking unacceptably long to appear as a posted message, as well as tardiness being received by members who prefer emails.
THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON WHAT SEEMS LIKE A MONTH NOW. YAHOO, your users are frustrated and your product is on a downward spiral to oblivion.

Same issue ongoing recently. Post to the group and it takes 1-2 days for most messages to show up for approval. Some have not appeared in over a week. Been using Yahoo groups for 11 years and this is the worst I have seen. We all need a solution Yahoo.
Instead of worrying about making us change our passwords, why don't you fix this message post delays. Do something Yahoo, just don't sit there.

My posts or replies are not showing in a group I belong to and paid for, this is crazy. I have seen comments online about "neo" being the issue. It takes an average of posting four times to get a message to post on a group I am a member of.
Any hope of ever fixing this? has been slow to load group home "fetching content" is like the guy who goes out for a pack of cigarettes and never returns.
Beyond frustrating, considering I have a paid account with Yahoo as well.
I've added a post twice, 2 days apart, and it has not shown up at all. Why is this?
Nothing works on yahoo groups. I have messages waiting to be approved and nothing even loads up. Now the message does not exist and I have people waiting for healing requests I can do nothing with.

This issue has been going on for me for a week and a half now. Messages I send to the group (email or posting at the group) may not show up in Pending Messages for many hours, a day or ever. What I approve in Pending Messages may not show up in Messages/Conversations for many hours, a day or ever. .Please get this fixed
Some (random) pending notifications and approved messages (outgoing from Groups) are delayed up to 3 days.
HELLO...Yes, this seems to have been going on, intermittently, for some time...I hope that was not a double entendre...anyways...as a Moderator/Group Site Owner for over 8 years now of my Group & another I started last year, does seem to be ongoing.
I am wondering, becuz I see that certain emails never show up, no matter how many times I have posted and waited for them, redid them...and others come through, automatically.
I tested one email, this past problem period of the last few days...it was a Breitbart Newsletter...no matter how many times I posted it...it went to Pending, and never arrived...yet most everything else, arrived with no problem.
Could it be a form of censorship? I don't know...but, sometimes it is only certain emails that do not show.
This past week...most of the errant emails, eventually showed up - but, that one email, never did.
The other time, previously, that this happened...many of the emails I posted to pending, never showed up again...I had to redo, all of them.
I thot this might help someone to clarify the issue...hope so.

Two issues: 1. It can take 5 minutes (minimum) to over 2 hours before a Yahoo! e-mail appears for Moderator approval in the Group. This is an e-mail going from Yahoo! (e-mail) to Yahoo! (Groups), so why should it take so long? 2. When trying to approve an e-mail on the Yahoo! Group site in the Chrome Android app, I can click on the green check mark and there is no response. Other times, the e-mail will be approved immediately for approval to distribute. The problem is inconsistent but persistent.
This is huge. I have users quitting yahoo completely at this stage. Posts made online or via email to yahoo groups are disappearing. I made an ADMIN note to the group 5 days ago about it ands that hasn't shown up. I made another later that did show.
We are seeing the same issues in delays with our groups. 5/6/16
This is happening again today 5/4/16
I have made a new comment but it has not appeared on the group. Now I cannot get anything to happen on my group(s). I belong to two groups that are not responding.
My group too is having a problem with receiving and sending out posts that are made outside of the group via email reply or posts made direct through the groups webpage. This has been happening for two days now.
