I don't think you can do that because the email addresses are masked for privacy and spam prevention reasons.

Subject: [beta] Is there any way to get a member's e-mail address . . .

. . . via the web interface when you're not a moderator and it's been fig-leafed in a message?

We have another "groups.io messages being blocked" situation with Earthlink.혻 There is someone in one of the groups I participate in who's sent a message asking for private responses via e-mail at the moment until this issue is resolved.혻 혻The problem is that unless I were an e-mail interface participant I cannot see the e-mail address in the message (or otherwise, to my knowledge).

I can't send a private response via Groups.io since that will come in to his inbox from Groups.io, and that's being blocked.혻 I can't retroactively get a message sent to me by e-mail, and really wouldn't want to since I prefer to stick to the web interface.

Does a method exist where one can get a posted e-mail address if one is a web interface user who is not also a moderator for a given group when said address has been included in a message?

There are two ways that I'm aware of to see an address online. First, a post can be edited so there's a space before or after the @ sign. Of course, the space would need to be removed to use it. The other is to go to the Group Settings and change the Members Visible to Subscribers. That may be acceptable to some groups, but not others.

moderated actions link no longer reads in the table of messages with #bug

Sarah k Alawami
 

summary:
when navigating with voiceover on mac os high sierra and the admin of a list goes through the messages, the actions section has no label. I'm not sure what the icon shows but I just hear "collapsed" then a click when going over the link.

steps:
1. Launch voiceover on mac os This can be done with command f5 from anywhere
2. navigate to groups.io and expand "your groups" then any group
3. navigate to the messages link (at least that's what voiceover calls it)
4. navigate to the messages table.
5. navigate to a message you want to "lock."

expected result. I should hear a label indicating what this element is.

actual result: I hear  "collapsed" and just hear the click. which means I've passed over a link. If I have that speaking I would hear ""collapsed link""

rank: medium

It goes to the list and everyone subscribed either by email or special notice, and it goes into the digests and summaries as well.

moderated Re: Earthlink block

Sarah k Alawami
 

Uh?  What did earthlink say regarding this matter, and did they give a valid reason as to the block and what you can do to get it lifted. I know you said no not yet, but Hoping that there is an update to that soon. There's got to be a valid reason for the block, I am curious as I think some of my list members are earthlink members.

Take care

FYI, it appears Earthlink started blocking/rejecting email from us around 11am Pacific Time this morning. Unfortunately, I have no insight into why and have been unable to find any way to get the block removed. The error message returned by them lists the URL earthlink.net/block, which isn't much help (we're not on any spam lists).

Hi All,

The new search is live. The main difference you might notice is that there's now a filter button for messages, which lets you set the date range. Also, the search is better than the old search....

Lots of fresh code; please let me know if you see anything weird.

Thanks for your patience. I will now endeavor to work through the backlog of other things I've let pile up recently. :-)

Thanks,
Mark

Sorry, not enough coffee. I meant this could be a setting somewhare in the interface yuo could turn on. For me that would be a good idea as sometimes I have to be heavy handed, that is so rare though thank goodness I might forget. Lol!

It's easy edit the hashtag itself to make it mod-use only and replies by mods only. I was simply pointing out the possible danger, but I would not suggest making this required or even the default. Some groups (not, as it happens, my own) may want the behavior.
