How to change your HPAA membership settings.

From this page, you can: Change email address  Change group preferences  Change to a single daily email  Unsubscribe.

If you have fallen off the HPAA lists, just send a new application to join with your current email address.

You can set up your email system to automatically sort your incoming mail into different inboxes. This is the most efficient way to use any distribution list or newsletter subscription -- not just HPAA emails -- and can be used to manage incoming mail related to certain subjects or people. With pre-sorted mail, you can efficiently deal with similar messages together. Available in almost all email systems. Automatically sort incoming email

In late 2020, we had to move our forums from Yahoo Groups to Google Groups. The Google Groups system didn't allow us to add everybody. We posted notices to each of our lists with instructions. Just send a new application to join with your current email address. A Gmail account is not required.  (Details on Yahoo to Google move 

Just send us a note...

...to receive a single daily email for a group, change your email address, add a group, or unsubscribe from a group.

Each HPAA group has a separate subscription list. The subject line of each email gives the name of the group in square brackets -- i.e. [HPAA Benefits]. All groups are moderated by HPAA volunteers.

Your email settings can be different for each HPAA group:

- "Each email" (You are sent an email for each post.)

- "Digest" (You are sent a single email for each group if there are any posts that day. Includes full copies of that day's posts.) You know what is being discussed in your groups, but get few emails. However, if you reply to a digest, you must remember to trim off the old content of the digest before you send your reply.

Please send a single note to the HPAA volunteer team -- subs@hpalumni.org -- with these details:

1. Specify what you want done with your membership for which groups -- including "Each email" or "Digest"...

- HP Alumni News. [HPAlumniNews] Occasional bulletins on topics that alumni may want to take action on -- such as stock, pension changes, networking, discounts, local events. (No company news.)

- Benefits Group. [HPAA Benefits] Updates and Q-and-A forum on COBRA and retiree health benefits, annual enrollment, transition to Medicare. 

- Finance Group. [HPAA Finance] Updates and Q-and-A forum on employee stock, 401(k), pensions, and other personal finance issues from an ex-HP/HPE perspective.

- Job-Post Group. [HPAA Jobs] U.S. openings posted by fellow members.

- TechTalk Group. [HPAA TechTalk] Q-and-A forum on personal technology issues from an ex-HP/HPE perspective.

2. If a change of address, specify any former or forwarded email addresses you may have used for your HPAA membership. We use your email address, not your name, to identify you in our system.

Please allow a couple of days for our volunteers to make the changes.
