  2. Click on "Join this group" near the top
  3. Sign in with your Yahoo! ID and Password.
  4. Here you can see information about: your Yahoo! profile and e-mail address, the messages you will receive, and delivery preferences for these messages, i.e., individual messages, a daily digest, plain text messages, or HTML messages.
  5. * If you prefer that your messages be delivered to another e-mail address (i.e., your Earthlink, RoadRunner, AOL, etc. account rather than your Yahoo! account), simply add the alternate address to your Yahoo! account by clicking on "Add new email address" and entering the requested information. You will be required to verify any alternate address. Click on "Verify" and Yahoo! will send a confirmation e-mail to that address. When you receive that confirmation e-mail at the alternate address (e.g. Earthlink, RoadRunner, AOL, etc.), please follow the instructions given in the e-mail and it will bring you back to the CACC's profile page.
  6. You can now select this new alternate e-mail address to receive all your group email!
  7. Click on "Join" at the bottom of the page.
  8. Your membership is now pending and once approved, you will begin to receive group messages.
