Each GroupStudy™ may be participated using a variety of methods, depending upon the purpose and roll of the GroupStudy and the need of the participant. The methods may include:

Mailing Lists
  The use of a mailing list was the original form of a GroupStudy™ and still an extremely popular option. Please be advised that some of the groups receive on average 150 messages/day! If you want to use your e-mail account for other purposes, you will need to set up mail filters (i.e. Inbox Assistant, procmail, etc.) to sort the list from other e-mail. When you join the list, you will receive a message detailing posting procedures and how to remove yourself from the list. Do not loose this message!
  An alternative to the mailing list is to read the list through a newsfeed. This allows you to only download the messages of interest and keep your e-mail account seperate. All e-mail messages are duplicated in the newsfeed with the newsfeed being the first updated. To access the groups via the newsfeed, set your news client to (Hint: Try clicking on the link).
