General Tips

  1. To make it easier on everyone, always include a subject when you send an e-mail. Besides letting people know what the e-mail is about, it can prevent spam filters from thinking your e-mail is spam.
  2. If you want to reply to a message and your reply is meant specifically for the person who sent the original e-mail, then put that person's name at the top of your message so that everyone knows whom the e-mail is intended for.
    You can also send a private e-mail to that person (instead of sending to the entire list). You can do this (a) by copying and pasting the person's e-mail address from their original email or (b) by using the Ewail list that Larry sent out.
  3. To make e-mails shorter when you reply, highlight any non-important text in the reply and press delete.

Separating your Ewail mail in Outlook Express

The following tip was submitted by Jane. Please address questions on Outlook Express to her.

(n.b.: I use Outlook Express (5.02) on a Macintosh. If you use a PC, the steps may be slightly different.)

  1. In the Folder List (left side bar), create a subfolder in your Inbox called "Ewail"
  2. Go to the TOOLS menu and click on Mailing List Manager
  3. Click on "New"
  4. Name your new account "Ewail"
  5. Enter the list address: ewail@yahoogroups.com
  6. Beside "file messages in folder" choose the Ewail subfolder

Separating your Ewail mail in Outlook
(this is not Outlook Express)

If you run Outlook, as opposed to Outlook Express, here's a procedure for creating a folder for your Ewail mail and creating a rule so Ewail mail automatically goes into the Ewail folder.

  1. Create a folder called Ewail
    1. Right-click on Outlook Today and select New Folder.
    2. Enter the name of the folder (Ewail) and click OK.
  2. Click on the Tool menu and select Rules Wizard.
  3. Click on New.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Click the check mark to remove it, then click on "with specific works in the subject."
  6. In the bottom half, click on "specific words."
  7. In the Search Text window, type Ewail and click Add then click OK.
  8. Select the folder you created in Step 1 and click OK.
  9. Click Finish

How to make YahooGroups remember how to log you in

When you log in, there is a check box called Remember my ID on this computer. If you select it before you log in, YahooGroups will log you in automatically when you go to the Web site.

How to add YahooGroups to your Favorites

This is handy if you belong to more than one YahooGroup (for Internet Explorer only--if you're using AOL or Netscape, you'll have to figure this out on your own).

  1. Before signing out, click on My Groups.
  2. Add page to your Favorites menu (click on Favorites, then Add to Favorites and add it where you want).

Now, when you click on this new link, the MyGroups Yahoo page opens showing you all your groups.
