Google does not support email addresses "info@domain"

Problem:, the free mailing list service by Yahoo, does not permit email addresses where the local part of the name is info, e.g. If you subscribed to a list using such a name, you may have been unsubcribed by the mail system. If you try to subscribe, you will be told that is not an email address (which is nonsense, of course).

Currently there is no way to overcome this limitation directly. We don't know why Yahoogroups rejects such perfectly legitimate names.

However, you can work around the issue by using a mail forwarding service:

  1. Create a mailbox with a service such as GMX.
  2. Set it up to forward all incoming mail to your info-mailbox.
  3. Subscribe the GMX-address to the yahoogroups mailing list.
