since google updated their sign up process for mailing list, we may want to update our entry to our mailing group. After the update you need a google account to join the mailing group, if you want to join via the website. But actually there is a work around, which i have outlined below:
- send a blank email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- you will then receive an automatic welcome email. Please do NOT click on the blue “Join This Group” button in this greeting mail, but continue with point 3.
- answer again the second mail “application for membership”. Just send an empty mail. The code in the subject must remain intact.
- you will revceive an automatic email, that your join request has succeeded but is pending approval
Maybe we should add this instructions to the website.
