Hello again,
   As I understand it, Yahoo will not allow you to directly set up a group
with a list of, say 100 people. The best they will do for you is send emails
to those hundred people "inviting" them to join the group. Part of the reason
for this is each member needs to have a "Yahoo ID," the creation of which
requires each member to enter some personal information. Once they have
established a Yahoo ID, they can then join yours or any other Yahoo Group.
Perhaps this is the biggest drawback of all in moving to Yahoo. Inevitably
you will lose people, people who simply don't have the time or inclination to
go through all of that (even though it only takes 5-10 minutes).
  Again another university server would be far preferable if one can be
found. And last but not least, thanks for your offer regarding the list.
