Dg, I'm aware of the various mail delivery options, but I didn't realize that's what Mark was referring to. I guess it was the terminology.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

When would the special message as you mentioned be used?All of theAdministrative messages. Check your group setting for how you get your email - there are 4 options:
Individual messages - you get one message in your email for each message posted to the group (meaning - you're using it as a mailing list)
Digest - you get a collection of messages - either 1 day's worth, one week's worth, or after some quantity of messages has accumulated (I don't remember which option YG uses because I do not like digest).
No Messages - nothing from the group appears in your email - you have to go to the group web page to read any posts
"Special Notices", also called Admin Notifications, which are only able to be sent by an owner or moderator, and go to everyone who has not chosen "No Messages" (at least that's how it used to work - it may be that Special notices now go to everyone, even those on NoMail).
Special Notices are for things like reminding people to keep on topic, letting the list know about a shutdown, or a re-name of the group, or anything "administrivia".
