If you are a manager of a Google Group, you can add new non-stonybrook members (those without @stonybrook.edu Google email addresses). Before adding external members, there are two settings to check/change for your group.

*Note that non-domain (non-stonybrook.edu Google addresses) can be added to Google Groups, but non-domain group members will not be able to access Stony Brook Google Groups via the Google Group web page. They will be able to receive and send emails to the group's email address.
