egroups??? Ancient history, unfortunately!! That would seem to be the
problem. OTOH, in order to be using Yahoo, Charlie must be subscribed to an
ISP of some sort, no? And wouldn't that ISP offer email service of its own,
likely thru MS IE or some such?--a debatable advantage, I know, but possibly
more flexible than Yahoo's. (I found this out in my own first stumbles into
the online world 5 years ago.) Not that there's anything seriously wrong
with Yahoo email-- I use it occasionally too, for non-conlang stuff-- except
that if one is using dial-up, it can all too often be excruciatingly slow
and capricious. I must say, however, that Yahoo seems totally Spam-free, a
Yes, subscribe via the listserv address, then enter that address in his
Yahoo address book. It's still possible to belong to Yahoo-conlang in order
to read the archive, but be sure to set it to "No mail" and never never use
it to reply to msgs.
