Just got an email from a couple who left the group because of too many emails soliciting business. There are a couple of things that can be done to alleviate this...
One is to go to "Account" button in the upper right hand corner of the web page, click on that and then go to the left hand side of the page and click on the "Communication" button. That will bring you to a page where you can select how you want to receive emails and from whom. If you want to receive them just from the organizer than click that.
The other thing that I'm going to do right now is change the group settings which will affect emails going out. I'll be selecting the option that all emails going out from this site will need to be approved by me. I'll monitor this for awhile to see how many unwanted emails are going out and if need be will change the settings again allowing all to send messages out to the entire group.
And the last thing, is that the "Message Board" is still open and messages can be posted there, so all can read them when they log onto the site, but a message won't go out to all.
Sorry for the unwanted emails and I hope this helps reduce them. Any comments from anyone will be appreciated and responded to.
