Subscribing to Google Group without needing a Google account

leave a comment »

More and more projects host their mailinglists on google groups. This is nothing bad per se. But it is not quite easy to find out how one can subscribe there w/o needing a google account. But it is easy: If the mailinglist you want to subscribe to is named foo-bar@googlegroups.com, you just have to send a normal subscription message (i.e. an empty one) to foo-bar+subscribe@googlegroups.com.

This is also documented on Google, but somewhat hidden.

Hopefully someone finds this useful :)
