That=E2=80=99s not entirely correct, Glenn.=20

Existing members currently set for daily digest or no email will be importe=
d that way. But members will need to go to the new DRGW groups.io home page=
and create a new password to be able to access the group files, photos or =
read messages via the web as existing yahoo groups passwords can not be imp=
orted. Otherwise existing members *should* just start receiving new .io mes=
sages without change,
*except* some email service providers *may* reject the new .io messages as =
spam and bounce them, in which case the member will automaticaly be unsubsc=
ribed and will have make sure their email client and service provider do no=
t reject .io messages before resubscribing.=20
Invalid email addresses will not be transfered over and will be purged. Nei=
ther will addresses already flagged by yahoo as bouncing, so expect the mem=
bership total to drop as dead addys will be weeded out (a good thing).

Also, trust me, some members simply will not read any of the anouncements a=
bout the move and will mistakenly deliberately unsubscribe thinking that th=
e new posts are spam. Don=E2=80=99t know what the fix for that is as you ca=
n=E2=80=99t make people read ADMIN messages, but it will help to post a mes=
sage to the old yahoo groups list after the move letting them know why mess=
age traffic there has dried up to nill.
