This is a follow up to the response at ID 41722299.  in order to be fair on points, thus this separate question :
When I put the link on the announcement and the reciepient clicks on the link, it does lead him to the Google page, but it wants him or her to sign in or join the group.
This  announcement is only sent to those who are already registered as members, is there anyway to bypass this, and allow the User to go to that message to read the announcement.
Thank u.

no they must be logged in somewhere i.e. another tab that is authorized to view that group. What you would like is anyone with the link can view that announcement which is not how google groups work with private groups.

I do believe that if you are logged into Google Chrome and use this as your default browser, clicking on the link would lead you straight to the post as it then would use the Chrome authentication to verify the group access.

In response to Koen, whenever I create a new Topic and save it, the text gets sent to everyone who had signed up for this google group, dcsankirtan.  Thus they may be In their email client, say Outlook, and not necessarily logged into their google account.  

I guess when u boot up your pc, and u log into your google account first, and then switch to your email client and view the email received from the dcsankirtan group that came into the email account, and u click on the link, Google group will not ask u to login to Google again.
thank u.

If you login in Chrome this is remembered and you wouldn't have to re-login each time you boot up. You do have to make sure that you set Chrome as your default browser.
