I guess we need a listing link where I can find all the user's yahoo accounts and where it will be very easy for all of us to add them manually to his program list. Or I assume that some of you may know of a certain way where we can only add the title of our group, for example in our case "evonline2002_webheads" which will automatically will add all the members in this group to the messenger program. In fact I am not new in dealing with yahoo messenger but I this is new to me to deal with the program for mass communication or for online confernceing like in our case??

This is used to happen to me especially after few minutes after you sign out the program.

Subgroup members might then want to add each other to their buddy lists. (If you think you might qualify to head up a SubGroup, don't be shy)

      > >
      > > Ismail is also right that Yahoo is not 100% accurate in indicating who is online and who is not. I think there is a delay as news of your arrival and departure takes time to propogate through the system. In any event, it seems logical to use Yahoo Messenger when a Yahoo ID is needed to take advantage of features of YahooGroups, plus it is the ONLY widely used instant message client I know of that allows multiple participants in voice chat, and multiple users to view web cams.
