Description

i was trying to subscribe to the django-user and django-devel mailing lists using a non-gmail email address.

i could not find anything about how to do it, i finally googled for it, and found that i can
send an email to
django-users-subscribe@…

it subscribed me correctly (got a confirmation mail, i replied and so on).

but i did not get any mails from the list.

so i sent an email to the google-support, and got back this:

==
Thank you for your note. It looks like the group owner set up the default
subscription as web-only. We've changed your subscription to email, and
you should begin receiving the group's messages soon.
==

(btw. it fixed my problem)

so, i'd propose as an enhancement:

Don't set up the default subscription to web-only.

because i think not everyone interested in django is willing to maintain a separate mail-account for django.

thanks

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm subscribed to both lists with a non-gmail account.

strange. after i've read your comment, i unsubscribed-and-subscribe-again to the -devel list, and now it works..

strange..

anyway.. i think it would be nice of the website would contain some info about how to use the mailing list without a gmail account.

i know that it's theoretically google's problem that it's not documented well,
but currently, if someone wants to join the django lists, the only "click-reachable" way is via a gmail account.
