I am not sure if this is to what you are referring when you say "send out
messages from within the system" but if you go to the yahoo site and click
on this group, it does list the members and you can click on any individual
and send them a private post that way. No, you don't get their email
address, but you get that when they reply to you anyway, and you can send
any individual an email this way.
I like the way it is set up, as I don't get spam from my yahoo groups,
unlike some other groups that I am signed on.....
Think for yourself and let others enjoy the privilege of doing so too.
