    Phone numbers posted here or elsewhere claiming to be Yahoo Customer care are always scams. Ignore them.

    I've no reason to believe that any employee of Yahoo has read this UserVoice forum in the last year or longer. I'm surprised they're still paying UserVoice to keep it open (assuming that they are).

    You may have better luck here:

    (but I wouldn't bet on it)

    @Jan C. - Would you consider $0/mo for the ability to invite any email address, or $10/mo for the ability to directly add any email address to your group?

    Consider Groups.io as an alternative, IIRC they don't ask for gender.

    The time zone shown in the calendar is your personal time zone, not the group's reminder time zone. To set your personal time zone go to your personal calendar via Yahoo Mail, or use this link:
    https://calendar.yahoo.com/

    Each group member sees the event calendar in their own timezone.

    Yahoo has been reviewing ways to improve the security of our member accounts, eliminate abuse and reduce the time needed to recover a password. Mobile is a secure way to solve all 3 of these issues.

    We will never use mobile numbers for anything other than verification purposes and share this personal data with other companies.

    We’re currently testing our registration page and will provide updates.

    Most often the problem is that the reminder time zone (set in the group's calendar) differs from your personal calendar time zone (set in your Yahoo Calendar). It is your personal calendar time zone that controls the time shown when you look at the group's calendar.

    @Roger - from your lips to every Yahoo Mail using member's ears: click the << button to convert your reply to plain text before you click Send.

    Group owners can choose Plain Text only for their group, but that doesn't cure the problem because it originates in Yahoo Mail.

    @Jennifer - if you're using Yahoo Mail to reply to messages in Yahoo Groups you have a few options which will prevent your replies from containing that gibberish.

    1) Use the << button to convert your reply to plain text before you send it.

    2) Use Yahoo Mail basic, instead of fully featured, to send your replies. There's a setting to switch to basic in the Settings page of fully featured. And a link in basic to switch back to fully featured.

    3) Use the group's web pages to form your reply (in the Conversations section) rather than Yahoo Mail.

    It does get sent out to Individual email group members, but they won't see it unless they have a means to see the text/plain message body. One can see that in the "Show original" feature of Gmail, and in most email client applications, but there is no facility to see it in Yahoo Mail.

    Look at the "Who can join?" preference in the Group Settings. If moderator approval is required then you must approve them using the Pending Activity pages.

    Otherwise, have a look in the Membership tab of the group's Activity Log - see if it tells you what has happened with these would-be members.

    The ads in Yahoo Groups are tailored to the user, not to the group.

    Check the "Add only to mailing list." box on the invitation page. Then they don't need a Yahoo Account to participate as an "email-only" member.

    News to me. I switch between machines all the time in Yahoo Groups.

    If it is asking you for a security code when accessing from your other machine that's a one-time thing. You simply need to reassure Yahoo that the you on that machine is the same you as the you on the other machine. It may do that each time you use a new browser or computer to sign in to Yahoo.

    You can be an email-only member of a group without a Yahoo account. Use the "Subscribe" email address on the group's About/Info page.

    To access the group's members-only web pages you need a Yahoo account, and yes the account comes with a Yahoo Mail address, but you are free to utterly ignore that address. You don't need to even visit any Yahoo Mail pages. When setting up your Yahoo account provide your non-Yahoo email address as an Alternate email address, and make that your "Primary" address. When you join a Yahoo Group via the web page you will be able to select which email address you wish to use in that group.

    I see the ads in the messages list on a light tan background. IE 11, Firefox 35, Chrome.

    After you click Reply, click the drop-down button to the left of the Subject text. That will open up the header so you can change the To address.
