Help! I Signed up for MF, but I Received an Email from Yahoo that I am already a Member of the Group! What is going on??

Thank you for your email. Please disregard this email. When you join a Freecycle group that is still tied to Yahoo! Groups it automatically sends an email to Yahoo! Groups to subscribe you there as well. Since you are already a member on Yahoo, this is their way of letting you know that you do not have to rejoin.

You can verify that your signup was successful by visiting: http://my.freecycle.org and entering your username and password to log in. From there, you can add mendocinocountyfreecycle to your groups by clicking on the "My Groups" tab.

If you encounter any difficulties, please email us with your username and email address and we can verify that your signup to mendocinocountyfreecycle was successful.
