Please see the enclosed message. Also recall that GMane is still
archiving all our messages, including their attachments, so this
should have minimal impact on this list.

Dear Yahoo! Groups Moderator,

Important update: The new date for service changes is August 21, 2003.

You are receiving this notice because you are a moderator of one or more
groups. Previously, we emailed you about upcoming service changes to Yahoo!
Groups. To give you more time to manage your files, we have pushed back the
date of these changes to August 21, 2003.

To continue offering you a high quality, free service, Yahoo! Groups is making
the following changes:

Message Attachments:
Email attachments will no longer be archived in the Messages area, although
Yahoo! Groups will continue to deliver attachments sent by email. On August
21st, all attachments in the Messages area will be removed, and Yahoo! will be
unable to retrieve the data. Please note: All of your group messages will
remain. Only the attachments will be deleted.

Before August 21st, if you want to preserve them, you must move your old
message attachments. To do so, go to the Messages area and click on "Expand
Messages." This lets you view many attachments on one page so you can download
them easily. Then you can upload them to the Files and Photos areas in your
groups. The Files and Photos features will allow you to better organize your
email attachments.

Files and Photos:
You will now need a web membership to access a group's Files and Photos areas.
To make sure you have web memberships to all of your groups, please visit this

Add Members:
Although there is no membership limit for your group, we are changing the Add
Members feature so you can add only 10 new members each day. You can continue
to use the Invite Members feature to invite as many people to your group as you

For more details on the service changes described above, please visit our help

We hope you will pass this notice along to your group's members so they are
aware of the changes. Thank you for your support as we continue to improve
Yahoo! Groups.
