What is PBGroup?
The Praying Brethren Group is an electronic mailing
list. Those subscribed will receive messages that are sent to the
group by other subscribers. Any subscriber in good standing can send
a message to the group. Each day subscribers will receive at least
one message, and usually no more than two or three in total.
Who is PBGroup for?
It's not for everyone. It's for those who are currently
attending or have previously attended a Reunited Brethren assembly
to send and receive announcements via e-mail of general interest to
all in the assemblies.

Help! I'm not getting any e-mail.
This happens to some people. As a first step to solving
your problem, please make sure your email is not being filtered out
by your internet safe software that you have installed on your computer,
or by your service provider.
If you still need help contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help! I'm getting TOO MUCH e-mail.
Some find that PBGRoup sends too much email to keep up
with. Some have also limited storage capacity and cannot check their
email frequently and run the risk over filling up their inbox. Here
are some possible solutions:
You can receive messages in digest format, one email per day.
If you want to try that we can change your settings, even better
you change them yourself.
Sign-on to PBGroup and change your settings status
to digest or mimedigest. We have found that mimedigest
works better for receiving attachment.
Option 1: Blocking
More than likely your email program can block the receipt of
email sent from a specific email address. I personally use this
to block email addresses that have sent me things that I didn't
want to receive.
Starting in February the email address that sends the daily messages
will be email@example.com. Enter this
email address in the list of email addresses to block. Assuming
you have this option on your email system this is one way not
receiving the daily messages. Since only the daily Prayer-Calendar
entries will be sent from this email address, you won't miss any
Option 2: Filtering
This may work for you also. Many email programs allow you to
filter the email you receive based upon certain criteria such
as keywords in the subject of the email. This is a way of weeding
out spam. For instance, you can automatically have any email with
a subject line containing the phrase "Make Money" deleted or even
put to a folder for easy deletion.
Also starting in February all Prayer-Calendar messages will have
a subject line containing "Pray Today". You can key on this phrase
and have these emails automatically deleted, or routed to a different
folder for later deletion.
Most email programs provide the above options, including the
free ones. However, those who receive email at their place of
employment may not be able to use any blocks and filters due to
the way your employer has set things up. In this situation you
might try web-based email (that allows blocking) and read your
personal email off the web. Assuming your employer provides/permits
I'd like to see a list of every PBGroup subscriber,
can I get one?
Yes. This list is produced quarterly and is sent to every
subscriber. If you would like to receive the latest list during the
interim, send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
