hello,
i have tried to subscribe to

wx-user

mailing list.
i got an reply along with a link to activate google group
and my account and email were confirmed.

but when i try to post a mail to this group,so

from mymail to [email protected]

i got the noreply answer:
"We're writing to let you know that the group that you tried to contact
(wx-users) either doesn't exist, or you don't have permission to post to it.
There are a few possible reasons why this happened:

* You might have spelled or formatted the group name incorrectly.
* The owner of the group removed this group, so there's nobody there to contact.
* You may need to join the group before being allowed to post.
* This group may not be open to posting.
"

can anyone help ?

Have you tried it through the mailman portal?

http://lists.wxwidgets.org/mailman/listinfo/wx-users

I am no member anymore, but I know the wx-users mailinglist works. However be adviced that there is a shift from the wx-users mailinglist to the forum (the ratio of traffic is maybe 1 to 50, meaning the wx-users list activity is very low).

If you have a wx-dev question however, the wx-dev mailinglist is still for the core developers the main way to discuss new features or problems with wxWidgets ..

With regards,
- Jorgen

Jorg: this portal contains a message saying they're moving to googlegroups

Ok that is interesting enough to repeat on this forum. I will make an announcement of it so people here who are subscribed to the mailing list will also know.

Sorry, not sure what to do; maybe try again and, on failure, e-mail an admin with proper apologies etc. ?

Robin Dunn seems to be the initiator of the merge. So maybe you can mail him directly? From the top of my head his email is; [email protected] but please verify that he has a blog and personal page i am pretty sure his email is on there.
