I should have gone in an done the same. I have no prior experience with "Yahoo Groups" so I am fumbling through the options. Originally I believe Frank had all settings in the safe mode. Acouple of years ago one of the moderators deleted the group. When it was brought back up all of the settings may have been set to default. Anyway, THANKS>

I have also set it so that messages posted by new members (anybody who joins the group after today) must be approved by one of the moderators before they go live to the group. When a new members posts a legitimate message, we'll change their individual settings so that they are no longer moderated. Spammers of course will get the boot. This is how I do it on a couple of my other Yahoo groups, and it has worked well so far.
