A: No, the system is open to outside email providers.
Q: Should I subscribe using a secondary address such as firstname.lastname@example.org?
A: No. Many people receive email directed to arrl.net or other forwarding services, then reply with their primary address. Please subscribe to Yahoo! Groups using the primary account you use for message replies. Otherwise, you may experience technical difficulties.
Q: What additional features are available to subscribers with Yahoo! Accounts?
A: Subscribers with Yahoo! accounts can review the archived messages, change their email settings, and post pictures or other files to the Yahoo! Groups website. Members are encouraged to explore other services for photo and file sharing, as most subscribers can not access the Yahoo! site. The email service is the primary function of our Yahoo! group.
Q: How is my privacy protected?
A: Messages can only be sent by subscribers to subscribers. Subscribers have been approved by the moderators to prevent access by those who are seeking to send spam messages. The additional information and message archive on the Yahoo! Groups website can only be accessed by subscribers.
Q: Why use the PCARA Yahoo! Group instead of sending an email that includes multiple addresses in the cc: field?

A: All people interested in amateur radio are welcome to join the PCARA Yahoo! Group, regardless of location or club affiliation.
Q: Is the Yahoo! Group linked to the Facebook page?
