Yahoo! has completed its acquisition of eGroups, and we're happy to
officially welcome you to the Yahoo! family. You can learn more about
the completion of the deal by reading our press release
(http://www.egroups.com/local/pr/pr083100.html). There is a great deal
of work ahead as we work to bring eGroups into the Yahoo! network of
services, but we're very excited about the future.
We hope you'll be celebrating with us as we begin expanding our
ability to help people collaborate, exchange ideas, and build
relationships around the world.
Although we're busy working on future plans, it's important to know
that there will be no immediate changes to either the eGroups or
Yahoo! Clubs services. All of the current features, policies, and
services will continue to be supported.
Users will continue to be governed by the Terms of Service they
initially agreed to upon registering for either service. In other
words, the eGroups Terms of Service will continue to apply to eGroups
Short term, we'll continue planning for the integrated service, while
trying our best to anticipate any major issues that might arise. We
will share news on our progress in the merger discussion group
(http://www.egroups.com/group/merger), and we encourage you to
participate in the dialogue by voicing your concerns.
We understand there will be a lot of questions regarding this
integration and we'll try to answer them all as best we can. We've
also created a Help Center (http://help.yahoo.com/help/egroups) on
Yahoo! to serve as a home for commonly asked questions.
Thanks for your patience, encouragement, and feedback throughout this
All the best,
The folks from eGroups and Yahoo!
