Per Barberaluel's request, I've gotten the skinny from Melissa, the admin for group 82, on how to send a mail out to everyone when someone has posted, etc.
Here's the instructions as a friendly FYI:
- From the "settings" menu within blogger click the tab for "email settings"
scroll down to the setting "email notifications"
type in the names you have, or make everyone an admin and let them add their own.
Here's hoping the group will spring to life again and get flowing with goodness once more!
