How to Change Your Email Address for a Yahoo Group

If you need to change your email address for Yahoo Groups, here's how. (You don't need to re-subscribe!)

Open one of your Yahoo Groups emails and find the link toward the bottom that says:
<*> To visit your group on the web, go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/the group name

Click the link and it will take you to your group. At this point you may have to sign in to yahoo using your Yahoo ID and password.

Then click the link just above the Group name that says 'Edit Membership'.
This will take you to your profile where you can change your email address. Scroll down to the Email Address section. You should see your current email address listed. If you belong to more than one Group and have set up other email addresses, the other email addresses will also be there. If you want to use one of them all you have to do is put a dot by the desired address and then be sure to 'Save Changes' toward the bottom of the page.

If you have a new email address and it isn't listed, then click the (Add new email address) link. This will bring up a new page where you enter the new email address. There is a notice telling you 'After you click on the Continue button, you will be asked to complete email verification. 'Verification ensures that you are the owner of the email address. (This is to ensure you aren't signing up someone else's email.)

After you input your new email address, click 'Continue', and an account verification screen will ask for your password and then you wait for the confirmation email to arrive in your inbox

When the 'Please verify your email address' message arrives in your inbox follow the instructions to click the link. When you click the link, you will get another screen for verification, enter your password and click the Verify button.

Then Yahoo will take you back to your Group, where you can continue to make any changes or else just leave your settings as they show on the screen.

Please note, if you joined by email and do not have a profile, you will not be able to add email or access your Group's online content until you create a profile. A CHAD membership requires a profile.
