My company uses Google Apps and has a number of email lists (I think they're called groups) e.g. group1@example.com.

group1@example.com has me as a member.

Is there any way for me to find out who else in my company is a member of that group without admin access?

This answers the question of how to view the members. I just discovered this myself too but was hoping there was a way to do it in gmail as well. – Chris R Jul 19 at 8:59

You can use this Google Apps script: http://googleappsdeveloper.blogspot.com/2011/12/google-groups-and-google-apps-script.html.

The only problem is that it will work only for groups that you are member of.
