    Hi everyone,

    Tomorrow marks the first email newsletter in which we're using a new email delivery service. I know that many of you have wanted to get the newsletter, but haven't, so please follow these instructions ASAP so that you get tomorrow's, and subsequent, newsletters without fail.

    1) Double-check that you've chosen to receive emails from HubPages. Go to your profile page and make sure "Allow HubPages to contact you?" is checked. If it is unchecked, you will not receive the newsletter.

    2) Safelist editor@hubpages.com. Please follow the instructions here:
    Safelisting HubPages
    There are instructions for Google/Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail/Live, Outlook, AOL, Earthlink and Verizon. There are also instructions for the most popular anti-spam softwares.
    If your ISP/email client is not listed there, please add editor@hubpages.com as a contact in your email program.

    3) If you don't receive the newsletter tomorrow even though you followed steps 1 & 2 today, please email us with the subject "HubPages newsletter" and we'll see if we can help you out.

    The newsletter tomorrow will follow a familiar format, but we will be expanding the stats section over the coming weeks, to provide richer data on how your Hubs on doing. Stay tuned!

    - Jason

    I'm glad I checked my profile, somehow the option to allow HP to email you was unclicked. I assume that's why I only occassionally get newsletters. I don't remember unclicking it though. :-\

      I just realized that mine was too.  I'm not sure how this happened, though.  I have never missed a newsletter until now.

      Jason, is there anyway to get one resent?  If not, I understand.

    Has this week's newsletter gone out today? If it has, I didn't get it and I got it fine last week once I switched to my GMail. Anyone know? I just can't wait!

    It hasn't gone out yet, but it should be on its way in the next hour or so.

    Please double-check your spam folder, and if it did get trapped there, please mark it as from a trusted sender. Otherwise, your ISP will continue to send it toyour junk mail folder, or not bother delivering it to you at all.

  13. stephhicks68 profile image84
    stephhicks68posted 9 years ago

    OK - I will look there.  No reason why it shouldn't have been delivered....

      Phew - I found mine in my junk email folder.  But sounds like Peter Lopez needs help... Thanks for the extra stats Jason and HubPages!  It looks great!

    Strange, but this is the first newsletter I have not received.  Not in spam folder either.

      Same here.  I always get it, but not this time.  And, it isn't in my spam folder.

      ETA: I checked my profile, and the option for HP to email me was unchecked as well.  Weird.

    Hi Guys,
    I didn't get the News letter either, Boo Hoo!, I just checked my Profile and the box has been unchecked, "I didn't do it as" bart simpson was once famous for saying.......jimmy sad

    pauldeedsposted 9 years ago

    Our old newsletter provider gave us a list of everyone that had ever clicked the unsubscribe link in one of our previous mailings.  In order to honor those wishes we unchecked the box for everyone on that list.   It is possible that you may have made it on to that list by their error, or by accident.

    At any rate, just check the box again and you should get the next newsletter.

      Paul, I have never missed a newsletter to date, is there any chance that you could either publish it as a hub or resend it, please I am on my knees here begging lol.....jimmy

    I didn't recieve the newsletter... So now that I've rechecked to allow HubPages to contact me (did it the other day again, as I don't remember ever unchecking it), I'm looking at the instructions to safe list.

    I see the instructions for safe listing the newsletter, but I'm not seeing the Add link to right of the Contacts entry in the left navigation column. My Contacts tab is not on the left, it's above the inbox and above the left toolbar.

    The only thing I could think of was to add the email as a contact, but I don't think that will help anything.

    Oh, and I use yahoo.

    Any suggestions?

    Edit: I had to change my Yahoo account layout to the new layout versus the old one.

    Peter, Jimmy & Whitney - I will try to resend the newsletter to you. You were indeed not included in the send list. Please check your email settings on your account settings page to make sure the first checkbox (Allow HubPages to contact you) is *checked*:
    http://hubpages.com/my/profile

    Update: OK - I just sent it to you 3! If you don't receive it in the next hour or so, please make sure it didn't get stuck in your Junk Mail folder. And all 3 must have changed your email settings because all 3 appeared in the query this time for the newsletter delivery. Thanks!

    Stephhicks68: I'm showing that the newsletter was sent to you. If you didn't get it, it is probably stuck in your junk mail folder. Please mark us as a Trusted Sender. If you didn't get it in your junk mail folder either, then I'd contact your mail administrator and make sure that hubpages.com mail doesn't get scrubbed again.

      Jason - I did get it!  It was in my junk mail folder.  Thanks for following up.  Steph

      I haven't gotten the newsletter still... and I've followed all the directions to receive it.

      1. Jason Menayan profile image61
        Jason Menayanposted 8 years ago in reply to this

        CP -

        We got an error message from the attempt last week from your email provider:

        "(Your email address) IS NOT ACCEPTING MAIL FROM THIS SENDER"

        This means that you probably somehow added us to your spam list (for shame!)

        I'd contact your email provider and ask them to make sure emails from us are routed to you. Then contact us by email and ask us to manually add you to the recipient list.

          College politicoposted 8 years ago in reply to this

          Ok I guess you guys were somehow added to my block list... I don't remember doing it but I have removed you guys. So I should be able to receive the newsletter now... hopefully

          1. Jason Menayan profile image61
            Jason Menayanposted 8 years ago in reply to this

            We've removed you from the bounce list, so you should begin receiving the newsletter next week again.

    ripplemakerposted 8 years ago

    Hi Paul or Jason, I just have to ask.  Is the HP newsletter the one with updates and featured hubber of the week?  I'm curious since I read some of the hubbers saying they never got any newsletter.  I have received mine (if this is one and the same) since I signed up.  big_smile

  28. darkside profile image81

    I got my second one. Yay!

    Though if we could also have weekly stats and not just the stats in total that would be great.

  29. ripplemaker profile image90

    HI darkside, you mentioned stats and updates. I guess that's the newsletter right?

      Glad to hear it!

      The new service gives us much greater visibility into who's getting the newsletter, and, if not, why. We're pleased with it, too!

  32. Lissie profile image86
    Lissieposted 8 years ago

    Hmmm was there a newsletter last week? I got the first one after you changed providers and then nothing :-(

  33. Jason Menayan profile image61
    Jason Menayanposted 8 years ago

    Lissie,

    I would check your Junk Mail folder.

    The last newsletter was indeed sent to your Gmail address: 4/2/2008 4:18:19 PM

    If you haven't done so, please safelist us:
