Using Google Groups to send blog digest

    Hi,
    When my blog was on Worpress.org, I had a widget that would allow me to send one e-mail to my Google Groups distribution list, which would then forward the digest on to the members of the group. I've moved my blog to a WordPress.com site and now, as far as I can tell, in order for me to use the internal subscription capability, WordPress needs to get a response from the subscribing e-mail account before it will allow the subscription. Problem is, the goggle groups e-mail account is a receive only account. It simply redirects e-mails that it receives to the members of the group. If I try to create an e-mail account for the group to both receive and send e-mails, the group name will have to be changes from the current domain to a gmail.com domain. (not desirable.) Does anyone have ideas on how to set up a subscription to google groups or am I doing something wrong? Thanks

    The blog I need help with is troop761members.wordpress.com.

    Hello there,
    Unfortunately you will NOT to be able to use the WordPress built in subscription form for this and I do not know of a workaround.

  4. Could you subscribe to your own blog (yes) but then send the email you get from your own blog to the Google groups subscription account?

    Yes ugly I know and not automatic unless your email system has the ability to automatically forward a specific email (some do)

  5. Good catach! :)
