simple problem -- I have a group of guys (my bandmates) and sometimes in the course of emailing back and forth to each other someone doesn't get the message or whatever, or a miscommunication happens. I was wondering if there is a way to setup so that ONE email addy acts for everyone, for example I send an email to xxx@xxx.com, and all 3 of my bandmates recieves it, and they can do the same. Also, if I reply to someones email, all 3 of my friends recieve the reply. Basically an email relay. Now I know this principle is already used with groups like yahoo groups, where it is like an email subscription where you recieve everyones email to the group, and everyone recieves your reply, but is there a way to do this without creating a yahoo group, or having to have a seperate web host?

Are you using Outlook?
Then you can find an answer here:

but other email clients have similar options.

So basically you set up a group called for example "TheBand"
and add each of the bandmates as a member of that group.
If you did it correctly (I would advise to test) you can send an email to
"TheBand" and all of your bandmates will get it.

If you really want an email-adress that relays messages from anyone
to all of you then you are looking for a "mailing list" which is a lot more
complicated since you have to take spammers and whatnot.
There is special software available.

HTH,
