This sounds promising.

I've been trying this with her. She works her Gmail from an Android
smartphone, and can't find the Forward button on the Welcome message,
if indeed she recognizes it in her inbox. She's a good friend, but
elderly and pretty slow (actually _very_ slow) with computers. I'm a
bit apprehensive about having her on an email-based list at all.

Following a link in a confirmation email may be pushing it with her :(
