There was a message a on October 18 that indicated this list was
going to be moving to the Shared Weight list server. It seemed to
indicate that everything will be moving including the past messages.
The messages posted up until October 28 will be available until December
14. There may be a short gap in messages since supposedly none of those
posted after the 28th will be stored. However, looking at the list
website I see this message I'm replying to listed, so perhaps new
messages will continue to be stored until December 14.

Many Yahoo Groups have transferred to IO Groups. This has been with all
content messages, imges and files etc. The IO folk do the work.
However IO have just raised thier fees!!.
But the big group that I do know was successfull was the very active
OTRR (Old Time Radio Researchers) group.
Meanwhile I will point out again that the mst valuable part of a Yahoo
Group is the membership, that is the email addresses of members. They
should be downoade and saved.
BTW there is also advice from Yahoo that in order to retain the email
functionality of a Yahoo Group every member needs to log in and change
the profile settings to receive emails - not special messages etc., but
emails from other members.
After Dec 14. all content will be removed, files, database, images,
archive of previous messages, etc.

I've set up a mailman list with the Yahoo archives, I don't know if this
is a good solution as replacement for the mailing list, but at least we
can use this to keep the archives on-line.
You can find it here:
I've imported about half of the archive, but I can add the rest as well.
As a replacement for the mailing list I think it would be best to create
a Peel group at groups.io, without transferring any content or members.
This would probably be more reliable and faster than using the mailman
list that I set up.
I've also uploaded the Yahoo archives in "mbox" format that I downloaded
from Yahoo, it's on the Mooo server in the Misc folder.
