I recently set up a Google Groups as a way to route emails to a select group of individuals. One person gave me the following feedback: "The issue is that i am a member of the list but when i post i don't get the emails to my account." She does get emails that others send, but not herself. This is a most strange symptom.
Also, there seem to be some reports that those who already have a Google account seem to have an easier time of signing up than those who have a different email carrier. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has faced either of these obstacles and overcome them. Many thanks, ~Peter Ferber
