Mark,

But I have just turned on FBL processing again for the yahoo.com,
att.net and sbcglobal.net domains (in addition to the already resumed
aol.com).
Don't forget Yahoo Mail's other domains: ymail.com and rocketmail.com.

Hi All,

Around 3am pacific this morning, Yahoo Mail started deferring email from us. According to their website, the deferral should last around 4 hours, and indeed it does look like they're starting to accept email from us again. No messages should be lost, just delayed.

I have no insight into why they did this. But I have just turned on FBL processing again for the yahoo.com, att.net and sbcglobal.net domains (in addition to the already resumed aol.com).

Hi Sharon,

As a satisfied beta user who transferred my group from Yahoo in January, I can say that I think your transfer process will go flawlessly. And in the odd event that any flaw does happen to occur, you can be assured that Mark will take care of it immediately.

My group is much smaller than yours but still has 400-600 messages a month), and some very large groups here (larger than yours) have transferred without a hitch. Go for it.

Good luck!

locked Transfer of Large List

Sharon Villines
 

Is IO ready for transferring a new list. We have 3,000 members and a few hundred messages a month. Sometimes close to a thousand when there is a hot topic. It’s neighborhood list — crime, nannies, medical referrals, house maintenance and rehab, politics, etc.

I don’t have a sense of how far along you are in development or how long you have been hosting groups.

And how flawless the transfer is. We have about 8 years of archived messages and very few files, if any. We don’t use the Yahoo features because members have never setup yahoo accounts so they could access them. And now Yahoo is requiring phone numbers so people won’t do that.

We are a plain text list and have no idea how much storage space we use. Yahoo used to give those figures but no longer do.

I doubt if it is anything personal. They do this periodically for maintenance. I’ve never been notified; it just happens.

J,

The "Like" button could accomplish that, but it requires people to log
in. If there's a way to allow people to "Like" posts from within email
without logging in, that would be great.
It should already work:

"Alternatively, you can reply to a message with either a "+1" or "like"
(no quotes) as the first line of the reply, and that will be counted as
a like (and the message will not be sent to the group)."
Mark, https://groups.io/g/beta/message/2696

IIRC there were some problems with parsing the message causing apparent failures when there were spaces before or after the trigger, or an extra blank line before or other distractions. But in my test group just now I succeeded by Clicking Reply then typing the three keys +1[Enter] at the very top of the message body. I left the quoted material that followed intact.

Another source of failure might be email user interfaces which don't put the In-Reply-To field in the header of a reply.

locked moving messages and/or threads between subgroups and/or main

Jeff Powell <jrpstonecarver@...>
 

Please count me among those that would like to have the ability to move messages and threads between subgroups and main. There was an earlier discussion here: https://groups.io/g/beta/topic/863767 where that was discussed. I just want to add my $0.02 indicating that without the ability to move threads and messages, subgroups aren't all that useful in at least some cases.

I moderate a 1600+ member list on Y!G that we're seriously thinking of moving over here. Subgroups would be useful in some ways, but only if we (the moderators) can fix things when they are sent to the wrong place. And trust me, our user base will get things in the wrong place with some regularity.

Thanks for considering it when time allows!

Well, I'm not sure any more that I understand the process you're trying to describe. If all they have to do is reply with "1", that would be very nice. If, OTOH, they have to delete all prior text, as you said before, that I'll stick with my feeling that it's impractical. I haven't tried any of this out yet myself. I'm just putting in a wishlist feature if it doesn't already exist in practical form.

I'm done here.

You can also click on Reply to Group within the group email and type "+1".  I don't think it can be any easier.  (Of course, it probably won't work for those who still have the default signature "Sent from my iPhone".)

Would you want another link in every email sent out for the possibility of a like?  What alternative did you have in mind?

For me, the nuisance factor of yet another link at the bottom of every group email is enough for me to give up on "like".

It's an interesting feature that I didn't know existed. However, needing to remove everything else makes it very difficult for most email members, especially ones using mobile, probably to the point where I'd call the nuisance factor prohibitive.

For the benefit of email subscribers, I'm trying to get group members to cut down on posts with no content besides agreement or thanks. The "Like" button could accomplish that, but it requires people to log in. If there's a way to allow people to "Like" posts from within email without logging in, that would be great.
