Sign up for the OPCUG Google Groups

Browse to groups.google.com. If you are not signed into your Google Account, click the Sign in button at the top.

 1. In Search for groups or messages, type OPCUG. The top of the search results will show Groups matching OPCUG. Click on See all 3.

 2. Click on OPCUG-Newsletter, then click the Join group button. In the resulting dialog box, you can opt to change some preferences, such as;

 a. If My display name shows as your email address you can change this to something like firstname lastname

 b. Email preferences can be changed to only send daily summaries or not email you at all when new postings are made (meaning you must manually check at the web site to see if there are any new postings)

 3. Click the Join this group button.

 4. You will then see the list of postings that have been made to the group. Click on any entry to see the actual posting.
