Email Subscription Problems

fix-broken-computerEmails stopped around March 20, 2011

For those readers who lost their email subscriptions around March 20, 2011, that’s the date that Theobloggers changed ISP providers. The result was to change the address that the emails came from. No longer are they from Theobloggers.

Therefore, if you have a whitelist spam filter, the new emails are likely being automatically directed into your Junk Mail, Spam, or Deleted folders. Take a look to see whether OneInJesus emails show up in there. They’ll be from me: jfguin(at)comcast(dot)net. In most email readers, you can click on one of the emails to add my email address to your approved list and the problem will be solved.

New subscriptions since March 20, 2011

The confirmation process for new subscriptions seems to have broken around March 20, 2011. I just found 17 new subscriptions in the last few weeks that were never confirmed. And that’s all the new subscriptions for that time period. (I was starting to worry that no one was subscribing!) The email program is broken, and so I’ve manually approved those new subscriptions.

I’m working with Theobloggers to get that fixed.

Until it’s fixed, if anyone tries to subscribe and doesn’t receive a confirming email, let me know and I’ll manually confirm for you.

Emails stopped around April 20, 2011

I have no idea why that happened or how many people this has affected. I know of at least one account that was receiving emails and then it just stopped — even though the email address is in my database and confirmed.

We’re working on it.

Email subscriptions to Comments

I posted instructions for how to subscribe to comments by email a while back. I’m not aware of any problems with this, except that it’s hardly obvious that you subscribe to all comments via email by clicking on the RSS icon  — which is confusing.

    Couldn't comment on the blog post–

    i couldn't get Jeff Jenkins' site to work.

    Matt Morine's is now ""

    And i couldn't look at the entire list you posted as a poll. It cuts off at about the M's.

    Fixed the comment problem.
    Will edit link to Matt Morine’s site. Thanks.
    Cut off is due to unsophisticated survey plugin software that doesn’t adjust for different font sizes. I’ve added a LOT of extra room, which will look great on some computers and create a huge gap in others. But it was the only software I could find that would handle such a long list and allow multiple responses. Hopefully it’s fixed now.
    Thanks for letting me know.

    I can’t find Jeff Jenkin’s blog either. It appears to have been taken down sometime after August 2010, and so I’ve removed it from the poll and the listing.

    Again, thanks for your help!
