Dear eGroups Moderator,
We have exciting news to share with you. We want you to be among the

will continue to be a free service, and all the main features you use
now will continue to be a part of the new Groups service. We'll begin

the United States. In the interim, you will be able to use the
international versions of eGroups.

* See when group members are online and communicate with group members
in real time using Yahoo! Messenger.
* Reach a larger audience. You will have the entire Yahoo! Network at
And much, much more to come! The best part -- you won't have to do
anything to your group to get it converted. This will all happen
automatically. All you have to do to access this wide array of web
functionality is merge your current eGroups account with a Yahoo! ID.
