E-Mail Address Disruption
- Please be aware that changes in your e-mail address or your mail server will result in delivery problems and disruption of posts received from the group and can even result in removal from the group.
If Yahoo detects a malfunctioning or "bouncing" e-mail address, it stops sending postings to the address and removes the member from the primary list, putting him/her on a sub-list called Bouncing Members. Sometimes an e-mail address temporarily rejects as the result of a mail box that is full and unattended or a server that is down for repair (soft bouncing). Prolonged bouncing usually indicates a permanently disabled or discontinued address (hard bouncing). In either case, Yahoo removes the offending address from the primary list and the member will no longer receive posts until their address is reactivated.
The moderators attend to the Bouncing Member list on a weekly basis and notices requesting reactivation are regularly sent. If the recipient does not respond they remain at bouncing status. If a member has been on the bouncing list for an inordinate amount of time and the Yahoo data reveals that the e-mail address is defunct, we will remove the member from the group. Note: If you are a member of other Yahoo groups, moderators from those groups have overlapping options for reactivation or deletion.
At any given time we have about a dozen to two dozen members whose addresses are bouncing and are in danger of losing their membership status, so please attend to your e-mail preferences if you are anticipating changes.
If you need to change your e-mail address go to your MyGroups page at
or if you need to put your mail on hold, you can do so by with the following e-mail command
If you are experiencing any form of trouble with the mechanics of the list please contact us at
