You need to go to Manage → Permission → Moderation permission.

If you are not the owner, ask the owner to enable edits by following the steps above.
a simple trick: go to the mobile version by adding /m after /forum. For example, your thread will become:
Then you can expand all posts and print them once in all.
The most generic solution which should work for every address/mail provider and every Google group is send a mail to
Some Groups seem to be restricted to mails registered to the Google account. An example is the orient-...
Workaround: if you have calendar access, add the group to a calendar meeting, and expand the chevron to see the list. (May depend on Apps administrator granting access.)

If you need to edit the "Display Name" of a user there is a easy work around for the Group Manager.
Make a note of the members details i.e. email address
Remove them from the group.
Directly add them using the following format: "Display Name" <email@example.com>
*update as of 5/21/19 the format is simply:
You don't need quotes around the name & ...
Create a user account called firstname.lastname@example.org. Then make email@example.com a member of your group firstname.lastname@example.org. Then for each of the individuals email@example.com who need to email firstname.lastname@example.org create a filter in email@example.com to foward their mail.

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.
I tested the following using 2 unique Gmail accounts:
User Alice created a Google Group and invited User Bob to join.
Alice created a Google Doc and wrote text.
Alice shared the Google Doc with the Google Group via the group email address GROUP_NAME@googlegroups.com.
Bob could view everything written so far and can edit the document.
Alice then removed Bob ...
If you ever involve a web browser in the process (that is logged in to your Google account) then Google will ignore the address that you chose to sign up with and sign up your Google account instead. Which is obnoxious. It is possible to avoid this, though.
As others have suggested, subscribe by sending an email to

Source of problem
Google Apps Groups is a bit confusing (for me at least).
Upon creation of a Google Apps account, groups can be created and emailed, but "Groups for Business" is not actually turned on. This is why the "request is invalid."
Turning on Groups for Business
To turn Google Groups for Business on, go to http://support.google.com/a/bin/answer....
Open any individial topic.
Press the tiny downward 'Topic Options' arrow, located
just below the topic title, between 'x posts by y authors'
and the G+ button. Select 'email updates to me' .
There's no way to do that by email, but changing the group's email settings can all be done fairly easily. When you go to Groups Home, you'll see the list of groups that you're a member of. If you have admin access you'll be able to edit the settings for that group.
As for the users on your list, they'll be able to edit their individual preferences as well: ...
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.

This can also be done with other file hosting sites like ...
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 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 ...
