Trouble posting to Google Groups
Considering what a great job Google does on so many of its products, Google Groups is... disappointing.
I belong to a number of Google Groups. Some of them work just fine. Several of them don't.
In the problematic groups, I receive messages from the groups. I can post messages to the group through the web interface. But I cannot post by sending email to the firstname.lastname@example.org address. The messages bounce with these suggestions:
Since I can receive messages and post on the web interface, I know the group exists and allows me to post.
We're writing to let you know that the group you tried to contact (groupname) may not exist, or you may not have permission to post messages to the group. A few more details on why you weren't able to post:
* You might have spelled or formatted the group name incorrectly.
* The owner of the group may have removed this group.
* You may need to join the group before receiving permission to post.
* This group may not be open to posting.
Since responding to group emails (thus the address is guaranteed correct) fails, I'm sure I haven't misspelled the name.
Since responding to group emails DOES work in other groups, I'm certain I'm not doing anything wrong there.
(Although now that I think of it, I've only email-posted to one other group recently, and I'm a manager on that group. Hmm. But I'm pretty sure other group members in that group are posting via email.)
Google's help is useless and there doesn't seem to be any way to contact them to ask a question. Any ideas why email posting doesn't work in some groups??
