Get Web access with a full membership

If you have an email-only subscription to a group, you can link your subscribed email address to a Yahoo ID to gain access to the group's Web features (Photos, Files, Events, Links, etc.).


Were you prompted to convert to full membership?

When you've signed in, Yahoo Groups will auto-detect any groups to which you are an email-only subscriber, and let you convert those subscriptions to full memberships. You'll be prompted to complete the "Membership Wizard" (steps below).

  Good to know: When you consolidate your email-only Yahoo Groups subscriptions to a Yahoo Account, you're converting those subscriptions into full group memberships that include Web access to your groups.

Consolidating your group memberships to one Yahoo Account

  1. Sign in to Yahoo Groups with the Yahoo Account you'd like to consolidate your group memberships to.
  2. Go to the Membership Wizard.
  3. The Membership Wizard finds and displays the email addresses you have used for the group subscriptions that are associated with the Yahoo account you're currently signed in to.
