The 'owner' of a Yahoo! group can configure it so that attachments are
rejected. Since infections come as attachments (unwisely opened), such a
group can be safe by design.
Among the advantages of a Yahoo! group (or a similar one offered by
others) is that it provides space for files, for photos, and for links.
The file space was recently increased to 100 MB, ample for any need I
could see for our communication here and subject to control by the owner
and moderator(s). A major advantage is the search function through the
archives, though admittedly that is of little value until the group has
been functioning for some time.
No need to miss a message. Get email on-the-go
with Yahoo! Mail for Mobile. Get started.
