moderated Re: Suggested Feature - Provide email "call" for a message by specifying the message number


 

Brian,

I don't get the idea of re-sending a message, in its entirety, by
e-mail at all. ... why not send the direct link to the message that
the user can click to read.
I think the issue is that the group's Messages may not be public.

If not then the link won't work - it will redirect the person to log in. I think it is the extra steps of dealing with a Groups.io logon (as simple as that is) that Bob is trying to avoid.

There are work-arounds, like using a public Wiki or a subgroup with public archives, but both of those require more effort on the part of the group moderators/mentors to curate the existing messages into generic help pages. That's a fairly big ask. And probably a better topic for GMF than here (how to use existing features to get what you want).
