RE: BTinternet.com email address
I've never had a BT or a Yahoo e-mail address and never had the slightest problem with Yahoo groups; I really don't think you have anything to worry about.

There are no doubt many members who received their email from this Yahoo list using a BTinternet.com email address.
I am about to lose my BT email as I do not use their broadband and do not wish to pay Â£1.60 per month. I am concern that as BT also own Yahoo that the access to the list I belong to will also be interrupted. How are other members dealing with these changes?
- i have 2 email addresses attached to my yahoo account (non of them a yahoo email )and i can choose which to use (at any time) for my notifications.stuart----- Original Message -----From: Frank SharpSent: Sunday, September 08, 2013 7:41 PMSubject: RE: [7mm NGA] BTinternet.com email address
What it might mean is that you have to rejoin each group from your new address. Id endless trouble with a non Yahoo account because it bounced quite a few group e-mails as spam. So XXX@... was spamming Yahoo group messages. If so many bounce Yahoo ask you to reset your account, presumably on the basis that if you dont the account (or you) is dead. My solution was to take an e-mail address at Yahoo, free, costs nowt, but Yahoo dont spam Yahoo. Im now with BT who in effect use Yahoo as their e-mail provider, so Ive dumped the @yahoo account.
The point being, whoever you end up with, set up a Yahoo account and rejoin all your groups with that address.
Thank you for the very helpful comments on and off list. Hopefully the optimism expressed will be translated to the actual experience of changing my email address.
- It should not be too traumatic, except that Yahoo have been messing around with their groups.
I belong to a variety of groups and they go to a couple of different email accounts and from the Manage your groups settings I could tell it which address to send the posts to and what settings to use such as digest format and so on. So if you add your new email account to it you should be able to move the accounts across easily enough.
I had a look there now I and I cannot even find where the groups are. No, I am wrong it is in the More Yahoo Sites and after that Groups and eventually Edit My Groups looks the same as it always did.
