Google Group Types 

Using Google Groups table
Group Type Description
Email List  This is the most common type of Google Group, and is used when the group is mainly used for communication e.g. an email distribution list
Collaborative Inbox This type of group allows the distribution and tracking of messages e.g. for a customer services or help desk forum. Responsibility for topics can be assigned to specific group members and topics can be marked as resolved once they have been completed successfully.
Web Forum  This type of group should be created when the group will only communicate via a forum front-end of the group, and not by email.
Q & A Forum This is a Question and Answer group, similar to an online help forum, where the front-end is used to ask questions which other group members answer.
