Yes, in a somewhat round-about way. You can share the calendar with your groupname@googlegroups.com email address and give it permissions to manage the content. A discussion will be posted to the group's Discussion page (triggering any email notifications) with a link to the calendar. Anyone in the group that clicks the link to the calendar will be asked ...

You can access all your previous posts by viewing a post you have posted to previously. Locate your previous post (any of them - search groups for your name/handle/user-name) Next to your post, you will see "Post Reply" and a drop down arrow, click the drop down arrow and select "Show Activity" And there you go, now bookmark it :) *Only the most recent ...

As far as I can understand what your problems are... You want to know how long attachments are kept in a Google Group? As long as Google doesn't warn you that the file will be deleted, I think they will last as long as the message they are attached to. Just like in Gmail, attachments will not get lost as long as you don't delete the message they were ...

Now, the reply you posted is under review due to the particular Google Group's Settings. Now, you cannot know when it gets accepted (in the same way as we - users with less reputation try to edit a post in SE and get the "until it is peer-reviewed" message. When the edit is accepted, we do not receive any email-notifications nor any inbox message in SE. All ...

Yahoo! Groups offers much of what Google Groups does. In their favor I like that the calendar is integrated better and you can have (nested!) folders. I moved away from Yahoo! Groups because I found the ads intrusive. (I do miss good file management, though.)

Create a user account called forwarding-user@yourdomain.com. Then make forwarding-user@yourdomain.com a member of your group group@yourdomain.com. Then for each of the individuals outsider@somedomain.com who need to email group@yourdomain.com create a filter in forwarding-user@yourdomain.com to foward their mail. When outsider@somedomain.com emails to ...

The easiest method is to enable Also Allow anyone on the internet to post messages As you might guess, this will allow anyone to send messagse to the group without having to be a member of the group. Naturally this opens the address up to misuse as anyone outside of the organisation can email the group. The other option (I'm not sure if this is a ...

That's a setting that the group owner has set. You can't override that. You'll need to go to the Google Groups web interface to post. (The address for the group is probably in the footer of the email you've been receiving, with other useful information.) The allowed post mechanisms are defined on the General Information page for the group. General ...

I don't believe there is any way you can access the invitation email directly from within Google Groups. The surefire way to get the text is to invite yourself to the group as well. To avoid Google Groups complaining that you're already a member of the group, use a different email address. This is easy to do if you use Gmail. For example, if your address ...

You can use the option Lock replies: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/transition-sfv/3Jdz8DMUaT0/5WIYUiE7P8UJ: Lock Replies - Disallow any replies to topic(s). Topics that have replies locked have a gray lock icon next to their names. The Post reply button will also disappear from within these topics. Unlock Replies. Lock Topic - Disallow any ...

While it's not possible to achieve that through Google Groups web interface, because it is by design, you can do it if use your Gmail to keep up with the group. You can setup your group to receive e-mail on every post and the by replying to that mail and changing the subject, will force the group to create a new post. So in both places you can see your ...

Google groups does not support multiple sign in. Because of this, it should use whatever account you logged into first in your current browser session. (The one marked as default in the account dropdown in gmail) If this is not the behavior you are seeing, that would seem to be a bug, since it goes against the information on their official help topic.

I found that the only way to "fix" this is from the groups settings, apparently it's a feature. Selecting the last option fixed my problem. You have to be an admin in the group to do it though, but you can always ask the admin to do it for you if you're not.

According to Google, it can't be done. How can I delete an entire topic in my group? We don't currently offer a way to delete an entire thread at once. To remove a thread, you'll need to delete each message one by one, which will require that you either authored the posts or own the group. To prevent abuse within groups, only the author or a group ...

You can report to Google by clicking on the "settings" icon on the top right and from the drop down menu selecting the option "Report an issue about Google Groups". I have the same problem and already did that. Hopefully the more people doing the same the more chances we will have to be able to get a reply.

You can find a lot of the relevant info in the Google Groups FAQ. For example, the maximum group size is dependent on the type of Google Group you have: With Google Apps, a group can contain up to 100 members. With Google Apps for Business and Education, there's no limit to the number of members a group can have. However, if the group contains external ...

It appears that they've tweaked the interface again and this should now be possible. Go to the "Manage" section Under "Members" (left-side menu) should be an option for "Outstanding invites". Click that. Now you should have a list of people who have been sent an invitation but who have not joined. Check the box next to all of the people you want to ...

Saariko, the short answer is no. I assume you're talking about domain-wide Google Groups, not a group of contacts for a specific user. Since Google Groups is a separate service (rather poorly integrated into Gmail), the full membership of that group cannot be expanded and modified in the To field like it can in Outlook with Exchange. However, an individual ...

The Google Groups directory is a separate thing from the regular Google Search. The directory is simply the listing of groups available from the Groups home page (see bullet point #9 here). As for why your group isn't showing in Google search, it's probably just a matter of being patient: Crawling and indexing are processes which can take some time and ...

If you are the owner of the group then do the following: You need to go to Manage → Permission → Moderation permission. There change the Edit other's post and Own Post. Save. If you are not the owner, ask the owner to enable edits by following the steps above.

How do you access the Google Groups website? By going to http://groups.google.com? Try instead going to http://groups.google.com/a/yourdomain.com (replace yourdomain.com with your Google Apps domain), and create your group there. If you're still not able to create a group on your domain, the domain administrator has not enabled the Google Groups for ...

Don't click the link in the email--REPLY to the invitation email. Don't type anything, just Reply and Send. You should get a confirmation email that you joined. I am running a Google Group where this works because of certain settings I chose; the Group you're attempting to join may require Google accounts, in which case you're out of luck unless you can ...

I have the same problem. I did report "Unable to load pending messages for moderation" to Google Report an issue about Google Groups. No response is heard. For the time being, I go to Manage → Settings → Moderation and uncheck the Moderate all messages to the Group and leave Moderate messages from new members of the group. This way, I get new incoming ...

It seems groups cannot be created to respond to several domains at once - you have to choose which domain a group belongs to: http://googleappsupdates.blogspot.no/2011/07/create-groups-on-secondary-domains.html The key phrase here is: ... choose the desired domain name from the dropdown ...

The web interface for groups (Forums) is not available on the free version. See the Google Apps pricing page and then click "Compare more features". You will see that while "Mailing lists" are included in the free version, "User-managed forums and mailing lists" are not.

Hundreds. Two of the biggest: Yahoo! Groups Google Groups But there are many, many more out there. A web search for "mailing list host" should provide other options.
