E-Mail Relay Addresses

You don't have to be logged on to your OurGroupOnline site to send a message to members of your group.

E-mail Relay Addresses can be used from any e-mail client to send messages to all active members of the group, or to the members of any dynamic subgroup.

This feature can only be used by members of your group, and only from e-mail accounts that are currently listed on their membership record.  Moreover, the sender's e-mail account must pass DKIM authentication to allow the message to be relayed.  These restrictions are essential to preventing these addresses from being used by spammers.

There are two types of e-mail relays:

Do not distribute these e-mail relay addresses to people who are not members of your group, as they will not work for anyone whose e-mail address is not associated with a group member.  So, for example, do not post any of these addresses on your home page or other public pages, as they will not work for members of the general public.

Messages send via E-Mail Relay Addresses are not logged by OurGroupOnline and will not be displayed in your In Box or Out Box.
