In the past few weeks, a number of people have sent email messages to me complaining they are receiving multiple email messages from this newsletter every day, sometimes two or three email messages within an hour. They usually ask me to stop that. Sadly, I have no control over that. If you also have the same problem, read on for a description of the problem and a possible solution.
I do offer a once-a-day email message service free of charge. If you would like to receive ONE EMAIL MESSAGE PER DAY containing a synopsis of all the articles published in the previous 24 hours, go to http://www.eogn.com and click on “Subscribe to the FREE Standard Edition Newsletter!” near the upper right-hand corner. A copy of that is shown to the right. That will take you to http://www.feedblitz.com/f/?Sub=948986 where you will see a subscription screen that looks like this:
FeedBlitz.com is a service I pay for and I can access my list of subscribers at any time and I can control delivery options there as well.
Other options for subscribing via the “approved method” include once-a-day notices sent to you by Tweets, Facebook, or LinkedIn. Your choice.
You also can unsubscribe at any time within seconds with no hassle. Details may be found here.
In addition, Plus Edition subscribers receive an email message from me ONCE A WEEK with complete copies of all new articles published in the past week, including Plus Edition articles.
HOWEVER, please keep in mind that those are not the only methods of receiving newsletter-articles-to-email messages from this newsletter. Several other services do the same, including Google Plus, MailChimp, Blogtrottr.com, FeedMyInbox.com, WordPress, RSS2EMAIL.com, and probably a few others that I cannot remember at this moment. Most of these services also add in their own advertisements as a way of making a profit from their otherwise “free” services. If you are receiving more than one email message per day with new articles from this newsletter, you probably subscribed via one of those other services.
The options vary amongst the different services. I haven’t tested all of them but I do know that some of them offer to send an email message to you within minutes after a new article appears on eogn.com. If I post 8 or 10 new articles in one day, that results in 8 or 10 new email messages in your in-box that day. Other newsletter-articles-to-email services may instead send email messages once a day or once a week.
Here is my recommendation if you are receiving multiple email message per day claiming to be from this newsletter:
The more reputable services always have a link for “Unsubscribe from this service” somewhere near the beginning or near the end of each message they send. Click on that link to cancel your subscription if it does not meet your needs. A few of the disreputable services may not provide an option to unsubscribe, however. In that case, you can set up an email filter to immediately place those messages in your Trash folder upon receipt so at least you won’t be bothered with them.
Once the present problem is cleared up, if you would like to subscribe to the ONCE-A-DAY email notices for articles published in this newsletter, go to http://www.eogn.com and click on “Subscribe to the FREE Standard Edition Newsletter!” near the upper right-hand corner. That will take you to http://www.feedblitz.com/f/?Sub=948986. FeedBlitz.com is a service I pay for and I can access my list of subscribers at any time and I can control delivery options there as well. FeedBlitz also does not insert any extra advertising in the email. Instead, those messages always contain ONE ADVERTISEMENT for MyHeritage that I inserted.
If you follow that process, I will not be flooding your in-box with email messages.
