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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

No, it is not possible to completely move a post from one topic to another. Also, as Google is currently not making advancements/improvements in Google Groups, it is highly unlikely to get the feature any time soon. Anyhow, one workaround will be to post the same post under the new topic in the Google Group. If you own the Group or if the original post was ...

@Steve, according to this post from 2012, Google doesn't allow you to disable spam moderation in free Google Groups. You can disable it in Google Groups for Business by following these directions, although I know that doesn't directly help you in this situation. I assume that you are getting an email from Google around 3 days after the "spam" mail is caught ...

@gsc-frank, unfortunately, the feature that lets you add all organization members to a group is not as useful as it seems. There is no way to exclude members from the group. In my situation, I'm stuck with such a group, so I distribute (via exported XML) or automatically add (via GAM) a filter that sends mail from that group to the trash for people on my ...

The option to directly add members to a group is indeed available again. They had removed it due to spammers misusing the feature: http://groups-announcements.blogspot.com/2011/07/new-in-google-groups.html (July 2011) Spam improvements: Starting next week, we will remove the option to “Add members directly” to googlegroups.com groups since spammers ...

There seems to be no way but to manipulate the URL. The part of the URL after the last / is the group name. So to view the com.os.linux group, you would enter http://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/comp.os.linux in the browser's address bar. If you're using Chrome, you could add a "search engine" that allows you to go straight to a Usenet group: ...

I just ran into the same issue. In my case, someone had requested to join my Google Group, and I approved the request. However, I subsequently noticed that the account Delivery status was "Disabled" as you described in your initial description of the problem. So I deleted the account and then used "Direct add members" to add the email address back in the ...

It seems to me that here, "disabled" is referring to a global (google-wide) status across the whole Google account -- that the suspicious activity was detected and Google was just waiting for the account to be re-activated before they start accepting mail from it again (consider the case of someone else using it to send spam - you want to block the account ...

Google differentiates between Google Groups (which everyone can access) and Google Groups for Business. Yup, different products. In your admin portal, enable Google Groups for Business. Then, in your user account apps, go to Google Groups for Business and follow the directions as outlined here: ...

To know if the group is moderated: Go up from the topic until you see the group web page (i.e. the page with the list of the topics) Click in the upper right About link (next to Members if you're logged). The Group Information page opens. On the Access row (above Statistics) you will see All posts are held for moderation text if the group is moderated.

Well, you asked it on 2011 and Google Groups changed recently some features... But if you want to enable replies from all users on the new Google Groups interface (hey, I use it in Portuguese, so some words here would be synonyms of real options): Enter the group and choose Manage On Details > E-mail Options, change Post Answers to All Members, and press ...
