Both. I get emails, but also use the web to actually go to the group. Yes, you can definitely do a reply to the email since that isn’t part of the Google Groups application.

Question for you Adrian - are you accessing the Colorado Birds messages by going into the web group, or are you getting the messages sent to you via e-mail?
I get the messages sent to me via e-mail and I am not sure I am seeing the same issues you mention - for example, I definitely had the option to send this reply to you only or to the whole group. I am replying to all in case others are experiencing similar issues and this discussion can help all find reasonable solutions.
It looks like Google has finally pulled the plug on the "Classic" Google Groups, but as far as I can see it hasn't fixed the issues with using it from a mobile device. I can no longer create a New conversation or Reply to existing conversations from my Android phone. Also, I can't "Reply to Author" from the desktop version. It also appears to be the same problems on iPhones from looking at the frustrations in the link below.
Looks like no more "instant" notifications of rarities on CoBirds.
