can't I post to the list?
number one reason members cannot post: You probably are sending
from a different email address than the one you subscribed
with. This can happen a number of ways:
subscribed with your home address, but you are trying to
send with your work address or vice versa.
your email application, change
the 'from' email address in your
default email account to match the one you subscribed
your old address and resubscribe the prefered address
that you actually send to.
government, university or business mail server has that
quirky habit of adding a third level domain (firstname.lastname@example.org)
to the 'From' line of every outgoing email, even though
you send from a second level domain (email@example.com)

and have them walk you through the best method of subscribing

|Why didn't my application for subscription go through?
||You must write a brief sentence or two explaining who you are and why you want to join on the google groups subscription page. If you leave it blank or write something vague or incomprehensible, your application will be deleted without comment. We get a number of automated attempts to join the list just so they can send automated spam. You do not have to be an environmental professional to join GreenYes. In order to protect our list members from spam, we just want to be sure you're not a spam robot.
||Yes it is, and you can
search it too.

this firstname.lastname@example.org thing in the old archives?
who doesn't hate spam? As of 2003, all archives are doctored
so that email addresses are no longer functional. This allows
us to host an archive, yet keep our subscribers' email addresses
out of the reach of email harvesters. Depending on the time
available, previous years may also be harvester-proofed.
| What if
I have a problem or a question?
List members should
generally take charge of their own subscription and unsubscription.
Examples of when subscription changes that the list owner should
handle include: a. email addresses that are no longer valid
or b. email addresses which have trouble sending and
receiving to the list or via Google Groups. Please - this is just a tiny part of
what I do for GRRN - do not email about subscription unless
you have major problems because, honestly, it may take me a
while to reply.
If you wish to temporarily unsubscribe, please do
not email me. Bookmark the the membership URL and place it in your calendar to change back to 'list' or 'digest'
when you get back from vacation.
If you have never used the google groups interface with your subscribed email address, you'll need to create a password for that email address. You do not have to take advantage of any of the other google apps to get a password, but once you have one, you will be able to control your mailing preferences yourself - along with any other google groups to which you may belong. To put your address on 'vacation', just set it not to receive email. That way you can still browse the list while you're away - even post from the google-groups web interface, if you like, without your mailbox overflowing.
If you have problems with list members which you cannot address
via civil discussion off-list, and
it pertains to the list, please forward as an attachment the
offensive email with a discription of the problem.
