As George has pionted out this list and also Access-UK are on Freelists not 
Yahoo primarily because of difficulties experienced with the Yahoo service. 
I don't think the solution will lie with any individual on this list.  If 
you have other groups that are on Yahoo your best bet is to consult with 
other members and see if you can reach egreement on moving the list to be 
hosted somewhere else.  I had numersious porblems of the sort you described 
with Yahoo even after carefully created and subscribing under a logged in 
account, the database never seemed to have survived after the merger with 
eGroups many years ago.

But, Colin, Val, this list is NOT with Yahoo!  It is with

Personally, I now steer as far away from Yahoogroups as
possible.  I hate adverts appearing in messages.

Hi Val,
You are not alone.  Loads of people on the NCWFSA list have
also been dumped out of that and various other lists.
You've clearly managed to establish a fresh connection with
this one however.

Sorry to raise this one as I know its off topic but
can anyone help or suggest a way round my problem.

I subscribe to several Groups hosted by Yahoo.
Unfortunately lately Yahoo (for some reason best known to
themselves) keep suspending my account and sending emails
saying that messages have bounced and if I am reading this
email the problem has been solved.  Then they ask me to
re-activate my Yahoo Account.  When I click on the link they
ask for a Yahoo ID, etc.  As I have never physically
registered with them (only connecting via the particular
Group's email address) i don't have this ID so consequently
can't re-activate my account.  Sending messages to them just
prompts an automated response saying basically that it is an
automated response.  I have tried emailing the
moderators/managers of the various Groups, but always Yahoo
intervenes with the original message.

If someone has a solution or suggestion, could you
email me off list:  val17@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Any help much appreciated.
