NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART:
A SIMPLE 28-STEP PROCESS
HOW TO READ THE LIST ARCHIVES
(WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE GETTING E-MAIL DAILY)
OK folks, here it is, and it is not pretty. They do not
make it easy for you, but it can be done.
On the left-hand side it says "sign in."
Click on"Click here to register."
A page pops up in which you fill in information. You
choose a name (mine was annieandlukesmom) and password,
and provide information. In my non-legal opinion, you are
free to say you are a 22-year old tuba player from
Hawaii, if you wish.
FILL IN THE ITEM that asks for "alternate
e-mail" by giving the email by which you are
registered with the group.
Fill in everything else and then "submit the
form." They may ask for an alternative name, etc.
but eventually, they will tell you you are now
"registered" and will send an email to that
effect to your "alternate email address."
You are not done yet, alas.
"Sign in." If it isn't obvious where, you
can always go back to groups.yahoo.com, or even
Click on "Account Information" in the upper
right-hand corner of the page.
They will ask for your password again, which you give
them and then click "continue."
Click the little "edit" box on the
"Member Information" line.
The screen that pops up will should your
"alternate email" that you provided. Click on
the link that says "Click here to verify."
Click "send email now."
Go to your usual mailbox.
Find the message that was sent. The subject line will
say "Yahoo email verification code." (The
original message welcoming you to Yahoo is NOT this email
and can be ignored).
The message I received said "if you cannot click
on the message labeled "important" paste
such-and-such in your browser. Mine did NOT have a mesage
with a link labeled "important."
So I did as I was told and pasted into my browser a
URL that included a "verification code."
Up popped a page that asked for my Yahoo password.
Provide the password and then click on
You should be told that "verification is
complete" and had me "return to Yahoo."
If you started at groups.yahoo.com, you should get
back there. If you started at yahoo.com, you would click
on the link for "groups."
Type in your password.
You will STILL not see CTElder listed!!!!!!!!!!!
SO, click on "my groups."
Then go to "find my groups." or "find
It should show your actual email address, the one you
gave as alternate and then "verified."
Click on looking for groups you belong to with that
CTElderDiscussion should show up!!!
And now you live happily ever after. Any time you go
to groups.yahoo.com and "login," it will show,
under "My groups" in the left-hand corner, the
link for the page for CTElderDiscussion.
Click on the link for CTElderDiscussion. And there
you will find everything back to July 2001.
