Collaboration Platform – Help Getting Emails

We’ve been alerted to the fact that some TMF Reference Model team members who have moved across to the new Yahoo! Groups collaboration platform may not be receiving emails and other notifications from the group. This is because Yahoo! creates a Yahoo! email address when a new user establishes a Yahoo! account (e.g. johndoe@yahoo.com) and by default, all emails and notifications get sent to that email address! If this is OK for you, you can set up this email account on your phone, tablet or browser but for most people, they want to receive emails and notification on their regular email account. You have to go into your membership settings to add a new email address if you want to use an email address other than Yahoo! Mail.
This is a really easy task to do but we have created a Quick Guide to help you through the steps. More help is also available from the Yahoo! Groups Help pages online.
