      >> Dear Yahoo! Groups Moderator,
      >>
      >> We'd like to officially welcome you to Yahoo! Groups, the new service
      >> that incorporates eGroups technology. If you haven't done so, please
      >> check out the new website:
      >>
      >> http://groups.yahoo.com
      >>
      >> ---------------------------------------------------------------------
      >-
      >> GETTING STARTED - SIGNING IN:
      >> ---------------------------------------------------------------------
      >-
      >>
      >> All you have to do to access your groups on the web site is to link
      >> your current eGroups account(s) to a Yahoo! ID using our wizard. (If
      >> you don't use the web site, you won't need to link your accounts.)
      >>
      >> The process is simple:
      >>
      >> 1. Go to the wizard:
      >> http://groups.yahoo.com/convwiz
      >>
      >> 2. Tell us the eGroups account you'd like to link to a Yahoo! ID.
      >> (Your account is the email address you've used to sign in to the
      >> eGroups service.)
      >>
      >> 3. Tell us the Yahoo! ID you'd like to link your account to. If you
      > > don't have a Yahoo! ID, you can register for one at that time.
      >>
      >> 4. If you have multiple eGroups accounts, you need to go through the
      >> wizard more than once. You can link up to 5 accounts per Yahoo!
      >ID.
      >>
      >> IMPORTANT NOTES:
      >> * Please remember that your groups have not moved. They are still
      >> here! All you are doing is establishing a Yahoo! ID log-in to
      >access
      >> them via the web site.
      >> * Old URLs and email addresses will continue to work.

      >>
      >> * See when group members are online and communicate with them in real
      >> time using Yahoo! Messenger.
      >>
      >> * Reach a larger audience. You will have the entire Yahoo! network of
      >> communications and communities services at your doorstep.
      >>
      >> And much, much more to come!
      >>
      >> WHAT'S STILL THE SAME:
      >>
      >> * All eGroups email and web addresses will continue to work. You can
      >> still send email to <groupname>@egroups.com,
      ><groupname>@onelist.com
      >> as well as <groupname>@yahoogroups.com
      >> (Your members will receive all mail from

      >>
      >> * All of your group information including messages, calendar events,
      >> and your entire membership have been maintained.

      >> versions of eGroups.
      >>
      >> * Clubs integration: We plan to integrate Yahoo! Clubs into Yahoo!
