Re: Should we move to groups.io?

With some editing (mostly order, unnecessary parts of the header and an intervening step at Comcast):

So, it took about one second to get from Comcast to Yahoo, then a little over a minute to get to that next step there, and then...

... over three hours to get to the mail gateway? Then another two minutes *exactly* (which makes me wonder if one or the other's clocks are just off that way) to get back to Comcast. Well, you know what my vote's likely to be. Or will in three hours...

Then again, there's the old adage, you get what you pay for. Yahoo may have been capable of dealing with mailflow two decades and who-knows-how-many companies ago, but maybe they just can't anymore.

It's been a while since I transferred a group to groups.io, but if I
remember correctly, it will transfer the entire mailing list, with the
possible exception of anyone who is currently bouncing. So long as
you're not bouncing, you should just start getting messages from the
new list.
That said, it would probably just require updating the various web
presences with the new address.
