Create a a Yahoo userid to control yahoogroups subscriptions.

By Otterman, 7th January 2004


1. Go to
Sign in for an account.
Note that you may be directed to a account these days. Its actually better than as there is pop access on these accounts.

2. Go to
On the leftmost column, look for: "You are not currently a member of any groups. Check out the Join a Group section for a directory of all groups. Already receiving group email? Please visit our Membership Wizard."

3. Click on "Membership Wizard"
You will see: "If some of your group memberships are not showing up, we can help you locate them. Search for memberships using the following email addresses: ·
Before you click "Continue", be sure to review your email addresses. If not all of your email addresses are listed, you will need to add the different email address.

4. Click on "add a different email address"
You will see: "Enter the email address below to add your Yahoo account. After you click on the Continue button, you will be asked to complete email verification. Verification ensures that you are the owner of the email address."

5. Link all your email account(s) to your yahoo userid
Follow the instructions to link your existing email account(s) with this yahoo email address, which acts like a central manager. Subsequently when you go to:, you will see:

  • all your groups,
  • which email address list mails are being sent to,
  • whether your account status is in digest, nomail, normal modes,
  • the option to change these status for all groups at once
  • unsubscribe .

This is very useful when turning off subscriptions to all lists with a couple of clicks, changing destination email addresses, browsing archive messages, starting groups etc.
