I belong to at least ten, and probably closer to 15 or 20, Yahoo Groups, and I have the Group emails sent to one of my Gmail accounts. I'm still receiving all of my email, but today, when I tried to access the Group's Message Board, I got a message that said I don't belong to ANY Yahoo Groups! I tried using their Wizard that locates Groups, but it came up with zilch, too. I checked to make sure that I was signed into the correct Yahoo account, and I am.

The other weird thing that happened regarding the Yahoo Groups is that one of my Group emails had a link to one of her other Yahoo Groups. I clicked on the link because I wanted to join that Group, but I kept getting a message that told me I had to create a Yahoo name that I would be recognized by in the Group. I already HAVE a Yahoo name because I went through that process when I signed up for my very first Yahoo Group a long time ago. I tried entering that name in there, but I got a message that said that name was already taken. I thought maybe, for some reason, this Group wanted to have a different name or identity, so created another one, but I still have problems. What happens is that after entering in a name and clicking okay, I get taken to the Yahoo email sign in screen to enter my password, and when I do, I get taken to the Yahoo Home Page. The process just keeps repeating. I don't understand what could possibly be going on. Can anyone help me?

Thanks so much!!

Try this.
Log into your Yahoo home page normally with the correct Yahoo identity and password. Instead of checking your group E-mails in the message centre (since you are still receiving them, at least something is working), click on "more Yahoo" at the top of the page. This should get you to a Yahoo Index page, or "everything Yahoo." Go down the alphabetical list until you find "Groups." Click on that.
The expected result should be that you will find your groups listed on the left hand portion under "My Groups."
The problem may "go away" by tomorrow, but if going this route doesn't work let us know.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Hi John!

Well, unfortunately the problem has not gone away. :thumbsup: So I tried your suggestion, and this is the message that I got:

My Groups
(You are not currently a member of any Yahoo! Groups)
When you join or create a group they will automatically appear here when you are signed in to Yahoo!.

Receiving group email but your groups are not showing up here? Please visit our Membership Wizard.

I'm having a bunch of other problems on my laptop, so I'm going to include this one with all the others on the Windows XP thread in case that's what the problem is, but if you have any other suggestions with this issue, I'm open to trying them. Thanks so much!!
