Delays in group email delivery

If emails are taking a really long time to deliver, you should first check with other members of your group to see if they're experiencing the same problem that you are.


Problems affecting everyone

If everyone in your group is seeing the same delay, it's either because you're in a moderated group and moderators aren't approving messages right away, or there is a problem with Yahoo Groups.

In moderated groups, contact your group's moderators to see if they need any help approving messages more quickly.

If moderators are approving messages in a timely fashion or your group isn't moderated and the delays are affecting everyone, please contact us using the options on Help Central to report the problem.

Problems only affecting a few members

When the problem only affects you or just a subset of members, it's almost certainly related to how your email provider or email client is handling messages from Yahoo Groups.

If you use Yahoo Mail, please contact us using the options on Help Central to report the problem.

If you use another email service, contact your email provider to request faster delivery. You can also review our help article about trouble receiving emails from a group for extra assistance.
