I'm going on vacation, how to I put my list mail on hold?

It is highly advisable for you to set your own subscription to OFF, sometimes called "Vacation Mode", before an anticipated extended time away from your computer and the list. If your mailbox fills up and GoogleGroups's system sets you to OFF then I have to fix it for you. I'd much rather you learn how to manage your own subscriptions :)

If you're signed into GoogleGroups, you can click the "manage my subscriptions" link on the main Google Groups page. On the My Subscriptions page, change your subscriptions to "No Email" to prevent email from being sent to you while you're gone. Just don't forget to switch it back when you return!


You could, as an option, while at GoogleGroups managing your subscriptions, switch to digest mode while on vacation or extended time away from your email account.
