Groups Update: Message Search, Moderator Logs, Bounce Management
- I wanted to keep you all up to date on a few issues that might be impacting your
experience on Yahoo! Groups.
Message Search: Some of you may be experiencing issues with the message search feature
within your group. This bug may present itself by either returning no search results or only
partial search results when using the message archive search feature. In the past we have
been able to solve this problem on a group-by-group basis by manually re-indexing
affected groups when we become aware of the issue. The bad news is that this fix isn't
currently working. The good news is, is that we're working on a permanent solution that
will prevent the issue from happening in the future. We know that this issue can be
frustrating for those of you looking for particular messages, but we assure you that the
team is working hard to restore this feature for the affected groups.
Moderator Logs: Some of you may have noticed a lapse in your moderator log records.
Our team has resolved the issue, and all of the logs should be up to date (but you might
notice a few of the logs are now out of order or are displaying the wrong date or time).
Bounce Management: As many of you have noticed, the bounce status on the member
page is no longer working correctly. This is manifesting itself in three ways: bounce
history numbers are showing as "0" instead of the correct amount; the "Send Reactivation
Request" button is not actually sending reactivation requests; and members are being
listed on the bounce page even when they are no longer bouncing. We understand what is
causing this problem and are working on a fix, and will update you as soon as the problem
has been resolved. In the interim, if you or a member of your group is in bounce status
they can "unbounce" yourself by going here :
http://groups.yahoo.com/member/preferences/email/view and clicking on the
"unbounce" link under the bouncing email address.
If you are experiencing an issue with Groups that is not listed above please be sure to
contact Customer Care . Please note that anytime you report an issue to Customer Care,
you are creating a "ticket" for our teams and is the first step in resolving the issue.
Thanks for your patience as we work together to make Yahoo! Groups better!

- Hi guys,
My apologies if the message you received entitled "Groups Update:
Message Search, Moderator Logs, Bounce Management" featured a number
of unnecessary line breaks.
It seems that there is a bug when Mac users (or Moderators) compose
messages within the Safari web browser. :)
The Groups team is now aware of this bug and is working to resolve it.
In the meantime, if you're a Mac user (like me) and are experiencing
this same issue, there's a work around. You can either try posting
using Firefox, or, if you're the Moderator of the group you can change
your preferences so that you moderate the posts, and then go in and
delete the line breaks that display within the post. Hit preview to
make sure things look OK, and then post the message!
Sorry again for the funky looking message!
