Issue with E-mail Updates for "It's a Wonderful Movie"
Thank you to Everyone who has e-mailed or left comments in regards to my Blog E-mail Updates not coming through to all of You!
The program I use is...
FeedBurner and I know, at times, in the past it has had issues, but generally it had been a reliable, free e-mail newsletter service, so I was fairly happy with it. (I mean, who can complain with free, right?) I was fine with it's few little kinks, until my e-mail updates completely stopped delivering.
I have followed the advice of others on-line, who have given suggested fixes to this problem; therefore, I have been in the process of trying to test them, but none of them have worked. So, it looks like it's time, for me personally, to abandon the 'FeedBurner' ship!
It was my hope, in the beginning, when e-mails stopped coming, that it would just be a short-term problem that they would fix, but it looks to be an on-going issue.
Here's what happened...
On April 7, 2014 Yahoo Mail and other Free E-mail services, such as: Gmail, Hotmail, AOL, etc... switched to a DMARC policy.
See this article at PCWorld for more of the technical aspects:
In a nutshell, they are trying to reduce spamming and phishing by eliminating newsletters being sent from a free e-mail service.
However, it also seems that people who have switched to a paid e-mail are still having problems with e-mails going through.
My next step is...
to decide which e-mail service I will use. Some of the ones I have heard others suggest are: Feedblitz, Mail Chimp, Mad Mimi, Constant Contact, and Aweber.
If any of you, who have blogs, use any of these services, I would love to hear from you... which one you chose, how you like it, etc? Please share in the comment section below.
Thank you all for your patience as I do my best to decide what to do next. It means so much to me that so many of you missed receiving my e-mail updates and took the time to contact me and let me know. I appreciate all of our support!
Thank you ALL so much!
God Bless, Net
