Yahoo Groups - Shutting Down

(1/3) > >>

Martin Iturbide:

Even that we discussed this on 2019,  now Yahoo Groups is making some news.

On 2019, Yahoo said it was discontinuing the web interface for Yahoo Groups, but messaging will still be working. Now Yahoo is notifying that it will no longer work after Dec 15.

--- Quote ---We’re shutting down the Yahoo Groups website on December 15, 2020 and members will no longer be able to send or receive emails from Yahoo Groups. Yahoo Mail features will continue to function as expected and there will be no changes to your Yahoo Mail account, emails, photos or other inbox content. There will also be no changes to other Yahoo properties or services. You can find more information about the Yahoo Groups shutdown and alternative service options on this help page.

Just in case I uploaded a backup of some OS/2 Yahoo Groups I knew on 2019-10-29
Any other backup you may take today is also welcome, it seem that Yahoo Groups "Get My Data" is not working anymore. Let me know if you want to post the backup on too.

For people that still love mailing lists, I created the "Warp" group on ""
For the moment I had connected the OS2World news there, but general discussion can also happen on that list.

Neil (BlondGuy) had been helping with this mailing list, since we agree that we don't want the people on Yahoo Groups to get disconnected from the community.

I had also created this subgroup:
This group aims to be a replacement for ecs-Technical on Yahoo Groups that is active.


Martin Iturbide:
By the way in we have the following OS/2 related mailing lists, just in case someone wants to know:

- Warp
- Subgroup: warp-technical
- BayWarp
- Iron-Spring


Andi B.:
Can the messages be fetched by a news reader?

Martin Iturbide:
Hi Andi B.

I haven't found anything about getting a newsreader software to read yet.

I think the workarround will be to use it as regular mailinglist and some mail filter, using the website to see the messages or even using RSS:



Andi B.:
Thanks. I've an idea now how to deal with this. I use Seamonkey for email and as news reader. What I dislike is the wealth of emails from these groups beside my other emails. But I think I can get what I want with a simple email filter - filter all emails with f.i. [warp] in subject and move it to a special folder. This should give similar experience than having different news channels. Have to try this out.
