Subscribe to a groupís mailing list only
If youíre not sure you want to join a particular group, you can try it out by signing up just to receive email messages from the group. However, when youíre only on the mailing list, you canít access the group's web features (photos, files, links, polls, and calendar).
To subscribe to a group's mailing list via email:
- Send a blank email to firstname.lastname@example.org, making sure to replace groupname with the actual name of the group (for example, email@example.com).
- To activate your subscription, just reply to the confirmation message you receive from the group.
