  1. Hello, I was recently made a moderator of a Yahoo group with all privileges. I can send invitations for people to accept and join the group

    I was recently made a moderator of a Yahoo group with all privileges. I can send invitations for people to accept and join the group, but it gives me no confirmation that the email was sent and no place to look for sent invitations waiting to be accepted. There's ostensibly nothing to click to get to this vital information. One thing I do see is that it said, "You can invite 98 more members today." After I invited 2 people, it said, "You can invite 96 more members today." That's sketchy confirmation at best, though.

  2. Decision to eliminate Yahoo Groups

    I'm not sure who made the decision to eliminate groups or why, but I suspect cost was a driver. I think the decision was a bad one. Users didn't create groups, Yahoo did. Yahoo not only created the group system, they encouraged people to join. They did join. By the millions they joined. Now, for some reason, the decision has been made to push all of them away. Years of files, photos and lessons have been stricken. This action is akin to a digital book burning event. Why would you do this? You're only pushing people away, perhaps to Google,…

  4. RFC 5322 non-compliance with max line length of 998 octets

    Some emails from Yahoo Groups are refused by my SMTP mail server because they contain lines exceeding the maximum line length of 998 octets specified by RFC 5322 (Internet Message Format, and RFC 2822 and RFC 821 before that):
    > Each line of characters MUST be no more than 998 characters, and SHOULD be no more than 78 characters, excluding the CRLF.
    https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5322
    Two examples:

    sonic319-35.consmr.mail.gq1.yahoo.com [98.137.66.216]
    sentto-40982-4272-1578661600-@returns.groups.yahoo.com
    rejected after DATA: maximum allowed line length is 998 octets, got 5400

    Please…

  5. Clear out our deleted members more quickly, so we can send another invitation to a similar address.

    I deleted someone who wasn't getting her group email (because a dot was left out of her email address). I sent an invitation to join with the correct address (with a dot between names). It told her she was a member or couldn't join, Have tried to get her on the group several times, to no avail. Nothing i can find in help! Not sure why this is such a problem.

  6. Yahoo Group Destruction :-(

    I believe that the changes you have made to the Groups affect one of your best services. A service for which you were still competitive.

  12. my group members are beside themselves about discontinuing Digest format. Can you reinstate this feature?

    Digest Format is an important feature of Yahoo. Our entire group is about to cancel their Yahoo accounts and find another chat room to move to. Can you please reinstate DIGEST form for receiving messages?

  14. Group Invites do not go through

    There seems to be a bug that won't let our group invites go through, there are many of the same issue listed under "Group Membership" for the past several months and nothing seems to be happening.

  15. I am the moderator in our group {for 9 years} and now when I send invites the people are not receiving them.

    I have even sent invite to my own email to check for filters or spam folder issues, but the invites just never go through. This has happened on 5 different invites in the past several weeks, not 1 single invite has gone through.
    If I can't update peoples email address or let new people into our group, then basically our group is dead.
    Don't know what Yahoo's issue is but I contacted through the Facebook support and they have no idea how to help.
    I'm not getting any bounce back or pending, the invites just seem to disappear.

  20. Yahoo's explanation of what is ACTUALLY going to happen to Yahoo Groups is unclear.

    Why won't Yahoo offer some real-time chat or even email support in order to EXACTLY understand what is going to be changing in Yahoo Groups. I have managed a group for over 15 years, and I can read, but it is NOT clear what exactly is happening, nor any specific helpful information on what to do at this point.
