      Bad news!

      I received the attached message from Yahoo in which they announced

      "attachments will no longer be archived within the Messages area"

      which will have a big impact on our group.

      As far as I can see, this change makes Yahoo unsuitable as a forum for the
      beam group.

      I would like the group's opinion what options alternatives we should
      consider and how the existing archive can be preserved for future reference.

      Note that the changes kick in on Aug 7 so that saving the archive has
      highest priority as it must be done before that day.

      Your ideas and prompt action will be greatly appreciated by one and all!
