May 302011

For some years I’ve posted updates about new products (Aerospace Projects Review, aerospace documents & drawings, Justo Miranda’s publications, etc.) by email to customers and those who have requested to be added to the list. Recently, the system I’ve been using – blind carbon copying a whole boatload of email address – has become troublesome and unweildy. So I’ve just signed up for the “icontact” system to manage these email updates.

If you want to be added to the email list you have to sign up. All that’s required is that you add your email address in the box below and hit “submit.” You won’t receive any emails apart from the subscription confirmation (it’s free, by the way) and any updates I send out. Your email address won’t be visible to others.

PS: If someone signs up for the mailing list via the link above, I’d appreciate it if you could comment and let me know if it all went smoothly or if there were any troubles.

    Well, It looks like it went well. In a few days you might need to do a test email.

      Did you use a different email address than the one you used for the blog comment? I checked the list of “subscribers,” and there’s no “kbob42@…” in there. Not a problem if so; I just want to check and make sure it all works right.

      Actually, this all came to a head when I sent an email update *yesterday* and it blew up in my face because Earthlink thought it was unsolicited spam. So in a few days I’ll try again with the same message but the new method. Currently about 16.9% of the previous email list has subscribed to the new one; about 0.07% has declined, the rest haven’t responded. In another day or two I expect pretty much everyone who’s going to respond will have done so.

        I entered the same email address… Let me try again.

          Nope, still not listed. Something’s screwy… let me look into it.

          EDIT: Ok, found your email in the system. You are listed as “pending confirmation.” Did you get an email to that address earlier in the day asking you to subscribe? If so, it might be waiting for you to confirm *that,* and is ignoring your later efforts to subscribe via the blog posting.

    Yeah, got it. I am in progress of setting up a new computer and things are slipping through the cracks.

    • admin

      OK, you’re listed now.
