To join a group, go to Yahoo.com and look for the “Groups” button. If you don’t see it right away, click on “View Yahoo Sites.”
You’ll be directed to the Groups page, where you’ll see a field that says “Find a Yahoo Group!” You can type in a specific group name or just a keyword. When you see a group you want to join, click on it and follow the directions for joining the group. Some groups you can join right away; some you can join after your request has been approved.
You can receive the posts from the group in several different ways, either as individual emails or arranged together in one email. Or you might just visit the group site to read the posts. Whichever way you decide, you’ll find the preference box under the button entitled “Edit Membership.”
Below is a list of some groups you might consider:
