GROUP email using the reply to ALL feature!

It's taking me more time then ever to click around just to READ the posts and everyone's replies. Then I have to click back to open the appropriate post or my reply is posted somewhere else!

It would be much easier to communicate through group email and if you don't want to use your real email address, you can set one up through mail2world.com (using your same board name). Mail2world.com WAS the former provider of ivillage email and it's very simple to operate. Plus, you have to enter your address each time you sign on so if you add it to your favorites, there is no possibility of anyone else that may be using your computer to SEE your name.

I'm just so totally frustrated with this new board format and it looks like very few people are posting.... or I just can't find the posts because my outline view page keeps giving me ERROR messages :(

What do all of you think? I'd be happy to organize everyone's email addresses and we can all add new members when they come along. We can reply to the email we wish to reply to but I honestly do think it would make all of us less frustrated.

My address is stre2001@mail2world.com

I hope ALL of you are doing well...

i hate this new board too sherry!!!!! i thought it was just me and my inability to be "computer inclined". is there any other short cuts to not having to pull each post to read when there is a reply to a post???? i know that most of the time people don't like changes but this is ridiculous. it is not change, its added frustration and its not like we come to this board glowing with happiness and contentment. i will go to mail2world.com and check on that. thanks for the suggestion. hope things are getting better for ya.....huggs to ya....rain....

The only short cut to NOT have to pull each post individually to read it is to utilize the outline view but the outline view does NOT update even after clicking refresh! Maybe I'm also computer illeterate when it comes to this new format... Is there ANYONE here that has figured it out and LIKES IT???

You're right Rain, we don't come here because we're glowing with happiness... well, not most of the time. But the thing that frustrates me is the total waste of time of just CLICKING and waiting for messages while I'm trying to read everyone's posts!

This is definitely NOT better! I read and post on several other internet boards and none of them are as GOOFY as this new format!

If anyone knows of an online provider that offers a board similar to the OLD format... please let me know.

I am open to suggestions. I am not posting because it is too frustrating and I have enough problems. Can we go somewhere else and start a board? I just sent Ivilliage an email about what I find frustrating about the new format - mayeb if we all do then they will change it??
