your subscription settings on TR are currently ok, 2 possibilities come to mind:

1) This is an artifact of the various problems caused by TR's switch to Win 2003 Server; or,
2) Your mail server is blocking them as spam, either via their internal filters or a black-hole list.

I will try to send you an e-mail via this site. Let me know if it is received.

Hey - you're right

I haven't received any newletters in a while either. I never really noticed that, then again I usually only keep them for reference to papers.

it might be worthwhile for each of you to do a traceroute from your machine to TR's servers, and compare for commonalities.

The problem will then be known to most likely lie somewhere between TR & the point at which your routes divurge.

but everything else is similar.

I guess he's trying to say that he's been receiving from the mailing list?

but my email is a webmail account in the us so how it would effect the newsletter but not peer contact....

Your e-mail ASP may be the problem.

by deepsand In reply to probably

They may be using a spam filter that is mis-configured.

Do you have access to ALL "spam" addressed to you? Or, is some/all of it deep-sixed by your ASP?

I have similar problems with Verizon. Despite my setting my preferences to turn off their spam filters, some is blocked by them, some is re-directed to my Spam folder, with the rest going to my In Box! To add injury to insult, the stuff they DO let me have is the worst of the lot!

get's sent to spam is html formatted email.

and since I specified plain text for the newsletter that isn't it.

it's not a case of suddenly stopping, it's a case of never starting.

Do you mean that you never received any that you subscribed to?

by deepsand In reply to the only thing that

My original understanding was that you were receiving some, but that they ceased arriving.

Have you re-visited your subscription page, confirmed that your selections are correct.

Even if they are correct, you might try resubmitting them by merely clicking on "Update."
