I�ve sent several messages today all of which were addressed to Synoptic, GPG, and gthomas. In my case all three yahoogroups.com addresses were in the �To� field in Outlook (my email program). A couple of the messages were received by all three groups, but the majority were only received by Synoptic. I can�t say whether the order in which the addresses appear in the �To� field determines which group(s) receive the messages, because it doesn�t seem consistent. However, it does appear to confirm what I suspected, i.e. that messages go �missing� when you try to send them to multiple groups. I would be interested in knowing whether other people have seen this behavior.

There's another way to send the same message to multiple groups: Use the CC: field.
