Adding non-Wellesley people

Adding non-Wellesley email addresses to a Wellesley Google Group

Google Groups at Wellesley does not allow you to add non-Wellesley email addresses by default.  To add a non-Wellesley email address to a Google Group, follow the directions below.  Once the settings have been changed and you add the non-Wellesley email address, they will be able to receive and send emails to the Group similar to an email mailing list.  They will not be able to access the web view of the Group, which is only accessible by people with Wellesley domain accounts.
