If you are not receiving the list, or if you believe you are only receiving some of the posted messages, log on to the group's web page (see below) and compare your received messages with the full message archive held there.
If some list messages are indeed missing, please check in any spam or junk mail folders in your mail program or on your mail server (browser/webmail). If any list messages are trapped there, you may be able to "train" the filters that list mail is legitimate.
If no list messages are getting through, are you checking your subscribed email account? The list will only be sent to that address.
Please check your list options (see instructions below). Email delivery might have been switched off, either by you (e.g., if you have been on vacation) or by the Google systems registering too many bounced (undeliverable) messages. Mail bounces are often caused by a full mailbox on your mail server. Check whether yours has reached its limit.
If you have another email address with a different mail service, (Gmail, Outlook.com, etc.,) it might be worth trying that. Different mail services will probably use different filtering rules, and what one service blocks another may let through. Instructions for changing your subscribed address are given below.
If all else fails, or if you need help with any of the above, please contact the group owner.
The list will only be sent to your subscribed email address. Instructions for changing your subscribed address are given below.
All list messages have the text [WWBBF] or [wwbb-basic] added at the start of the Subject line. This can help you to identify list mail. You can also use it to set up a Mail Rule in your mail program, e.g.: "if Subject contains "[WWBBF]" then move to <folder name>. This can be a useful way to prevent your Inbox from becoming clogged, by automatically moving list mail to its own folder as it arrives.
You must be subscribed to a group to be able to post, and you can only post from your subscribed address. Google will ignore any emails received from an unrecognised address.
If you are replying to a message, please delete the old footer text. Footer text is automatically added to every message posted, and if old text is not deleted it will just duplicate and build up.
Using "Reply" is an easy way to create a new email to the group. However, if your topic is different from the one that you are replying to, please change the Subject line to match the new topic. This will make it easier for people to find and follow your new discussion and will not confuse followers of the original discussion.
If you receive the list as a Daily Summary or Combined Update (see List Delivery Options below) and wish to reply to a particular message, please copy the topic title (Subject) into the subject line of your reply. Also please remember to delete anything not related to the item that you are replying to.
Group web page
The group's web page on Google Groups contains the Forum/Message Archive, plus your group settings where you can change your displayed name, subscribed email address or mail delivery method.
- Please note: You must be logged in to your Google account to visit a group web page.
As this is a private group, you must be logged in to your Google account to visit this web page. If you have more than one Google account, it must be the one associated with the email address that you are using for the group. If your subscribed email address in not associated with a Google account, you can create a new account or add it to an existing one (See Useful Links immediately below.).
Changing your subscribed email address or list delivery options
Log in to the group's web page (see above)
Click on the [My Settings] icon at top right (looks like a head-and-shoulders + cog-wheel)
Click on "Membership and email settings"
To add or change your displayed name: It is helpful to others if you add your real name, otherwise Google defaults to displaying
your email address.
To add or change your displayed name, click on "edit" under "My display name:" at the top.
To change your email address:
On the line "Use <your email address> for this group with the following settings", click on your email address. This will drop a list of available addresses associated with the same Google account. Click the one that you want to use.
If your preferred address is not listed, you will need to add it to your account (see above).
If you try to add your new address but are told that it is already linked to a different Google account, please contact the group owner . It may be necessary to unsubscribe your first address and then subscribe you again using the new one.
To change your list delivery options:
Below your email address it will indicate your current list delivery method. Click on this for more options. The options are:
Send me an email for every new message (the default setting for new members).
Don't send email updates (use this if you prefer to read messages on the forum page; also useful if you are going away - but don't forget to turn delivery back on when you return!).
Send daily summaries (one email per day, summarising all messages received during the previous 24 hours. Log in to the group web page (see above) to read the full messages).
Send combined updates (25 messages combined in one email).
