What to do if you’re overwhelmed by too much Yahoo Groups email


By Denise Amrich

A number of our readers have written in, telling us that they love their Yahoo group, but when they looked at their email inboxes they were like...whoa! Too much email!

There is an easy way to fix that.

You can change your preferences to receive either only one Daily Digest, or no emails at all.

You can do this by locating the "Edit Membership" link -- it's in a white bar underneath the banner ads at the top of your group page. Once you click that, locate the Step 2: Message Delivery Area in the center of the page.

There, you can choose "Daily Digest" (if you only want one email per day with up to 25 messages compiled in it) or "Web Only" (if you want to only read messages and look at files when you log in).

And that's it. You'll go from a "whoa!" flood of email messages down to one or none.

Happy grouping!
