      Hi. I'm a Yahoo! Groups list owner. On 7th August Yahoo! will delete
      all the attachments in the archived messages of all groups.

      Yahoo! have allowed too little time to adjust to the new policy and they
      have not provided enough system supports to reduce the impact of the
      policy.

      Would anyone on your list be able to devise a quick software program
      that could automate the job of contacting list owners to ask them to
      lobby Yahoo! to delay the deletions and to create a few new areas of
      functionality that will reduce the impacts of the new policy? We only
      have a few days to convince Yahoo to be most constructive. (By the
      way bulk mailings and identical mailings sent individually don't seem to
      get through to list owners. Yahoo has set up a block to stop easy
      communication with list owners.)

      The suggested changes that I think are worth advocating to Yahoo! are
      contained in the attached file.

      Cheers, Philip
