Hi, please let us know how we can improve Groups.

Change how emails are delivered to groups back to the old way

Why has the way emails from group members changed to now display the name of the member and their email address. Not a good thing, please change back or allow members to change it back.

        I fully agree with this post, there are no valid reasons for all and sundry to see your email address.
        It always worked ok when your alias was displayed. Very few of the emails I receive have got email addresses on them, only a name or alias?
        So, it looks as if there is a way to change this, but I have not been able to discover how as yet.
        I have mailed the group moderato/owner two or three time about this,but not heard a thing from them.

        It also appears some mail clients (Android for one) DO NOT OBEY THE REPLY-TO FIELD, and use the FROM field instead, causing REPLIES TO STILL GO TO THE GROUP.

        What is the point of Yahoo displaying the email address of the sender if the group has been set to hide email addresses?
