Get real: the member who selects No Mail probably did so for a reason, otherwise they would have selected Special Notices.
Well, yeah, but in yahoogroups, email-only members DID NOT HAVE that choice, and still don't. "normal", "digest", "nomail" - that's it.
5a. Re: Special messagesThat's what Mark says he's tempted to do. I could live with those settings, but still think it's VERY wrong to *call* it "nomail" when you still do get some messages.
My preference is still that the owner of a group can disable actual "nomail", especially if the type of group requires people to be reachable off-list. That may not be necessary in announcement-groups, but very practical in busy groups whose digests would become undigestable if people discuss all kinds of details on-list.
Periodical newsletters can be subscribed separately.
