    I've never received one.  Can I start receiving them, please?

    I can write one for you big_smile I'm afraid I can't do this with any regularity, though tongue

    We're sending them out to you guys...

    They are probably getting trapped in your Junk Mail folder by your spam filter.

    The best thing to do is make sure any mail from hubpages.com is safelisted/whitelisted so delivery is ensured.

    We will be moving to a new email delivery service soon, which also might help deliverability.

    kk.  will wait and no biggie either way, although it would be nice to receive.

    I get my comments notifications and letterz from people people, so I do know I get mail from here - just for some reason never the surveys (which I hear about laterz on here) or the newzletterz. :shrug:

    dunno why.

    I get them regularly. They used to head to my bulk folder, but after I marked them not spam, they have learnt to behave.
    The next newsletter will have Charlotte's interview, great!

    I got them once in the last  weeks, but never again...How often are we supposed to get them?

  8. Jason Menayan profile image60

    They're sent out every week on Wednesday.

    Note: Hotmail is notoriously bad at delivering messages. We've done internal tests and have seen the HubPages newsletter very sporadically being delivered to Hotmail accounts.

    A Hubber even ran an experiment and proved Hotmail sucks:

    I strongly suggest entering in another email address as your official HubPages address if you haven't been getting the HubPages newsletter. Gmail deliverability is typically excellent.

    Today is Wednesday and still no newsletter, even after swapping my email to gmail last week.

    Anyone out there received it yet, and if so are you willing to forward it to me?

    Let me know!

      I use mac.com for email and I only get two a month too, usually mid-month and end of month.

        That's about when I get them, too. If I do. For about 2 months I didn't get anything. I still don't get comment emails or new hubs from my favorite hubbers.

    Whitney,

    Swap to gmail.  They never delete your emails, you get something nuts like 3g of space (the number keeps rising daily) and after three months of not getting newsletters, I finally got the one put out today!

  18. Stacie Naczelnik profile image73
    Stacie Naczelnikposted 9 years ago

    So, my computer here at work has been infected with some stupid virus.  I have never gotten a virus before!  It sucks.

    Anyway...it means I'm without a computer while they fix it (so, how am I on a computer now?)...I decided to sneak down to our student study lab!  I got to read the newsletter and learn all about gamergirl!  Fun.

    I concur with everyone else who said "go to gmail".

    Not only do they deliver emails better, you never have to delete them, and you can search all your saved and sent mails for one particular word or phrase, so you never have to remember where you filed something.

    It's a Godsend!!

    I just signed up with gmail, but I'm not sure about it. I mean it seems great, but I love how everything is set up within my current email in regards to current folders and such. I jsut don't see how I would be able to move it all without forwarding it. I don't know... Plus, would I be abel to transfer my hubpages email over?

      I've been using Gmail for about three years now. I signed up when it was still in the beta stages. I actually prefer it to my regular Internet Provider email. I have over two gigabytes of space, the mail is easy to manage, and there are a lot of features you just can't get with Outlook, Thuderbird, or whatever.

      I don't use it as my primary super-secret email account, but for responding to web-sites that want an address and, informally, with family and friends. I like using it for those darned sites that want an email address just in case I'm suddenly the "happy" recipient of hundreds of of spam hits. Something that seems unavoidable when one must supply an email address to join a site.. See, gmail is really good at tossing spam.

      As far as moving your mail over to it I didn't do that nor recommend that you do that.

      You can change your hubmail address by logging in, going to "My Account", and selecting "Edit your Profile." Your email address should be the first changeable item there.

    Hi everyone,

    I really appreciate that you guys look forward to the newsletter. I put it together every week, so it's gratifying to know there are eager readers!

    If you are having problems getting HubPages emails

    I put together this set of instructions that should help you get hubpages.com to be treated as a "safe sender" (the process is called safelisting or whitelisting). I covered Gmail (although they rarely have problems), Yahoo Mail, Hotmail (Windows Live Mail) and Outlook, because those are the ones that I was able to verify.

    http://hubpages.com/help/safelisting-hubpages

    If you've figured out how to safelist hubpages.com on other popular email platforms, please send us an email and let us know how so we can add it to the list. I'll also add this to the FAQ (Help page).

    - Jason

    I have gmail too, and I love it.

    Jason, the newsletter is much appreciated!  Thanks for the email info.

    You can set up Outlook or Thunderbird to download your Gmail emails, and carry on using your existing folder structure.

    But when you can't find something and you KNOW it's in a folder somewhere, you can go back to the Gmail web interface and basically Google search your own emails for whatever you're looking for.

    That's what I do, and I find it the best of both worlds, because I hate, loathe and detest using web-based email interfaces, but I love how easy it is to find something on Gmail when I've forgotten where I filed it (or I've deleted it and emptied the trash and then someone asks me for it).
