When we first started the newsletter for ScrapbookScrapbook.com,
we had no idea how much it would grow. We started out using a helpful, free
mailing list tool and it worked great for us for a long time. However, once our mailing
list reached the size it is now, sending a newsletter became something that took
hours and hours to do because the tool we were using could only handle small
batches of email addresses at a time.
Long story short, we decided to switch to
a mailing list manager that was designed to handle hundreds of thousands of
subscribers if need be. Now it will be easier and faster for us to update ya'll
about new sets and other changes we make.
We are considering sending out
newsletters more often than twice a year, but we would like to get your
input on how frequently to send them. Please answer the poll to the right
so we can get a good idea of what YOU would like.
We imported all of the addresses
that were on our mailing list through January 9th. Below are links where
you can subscribe, unsubscribe or edit your preferences (you can now
choose whether to receive the newsletter in HTML or Text format and change
your email address).
Important!!!! - If your email
address has any characters other than letters, numbers and these symbols:
. _ - and 1 @ then the newsletters will not get to you. Also, be
sure you don't use commas where periods are supposed to be. We had to
delete a few email addresses that had ` and ' marks in them.

Some people have said they cannot
change their email address. If you use the specialized link in the email
that was sent to you that says "To update your preferences and to unsubscribe visit this link"
it will take you to a screen that asks you to confirm the information is
Type the new address you would
like to get the newsletter at in both fields, select HTML or Text and then
click update. The system already knows who you are if you use the
specialized link, so all you have to do is make sure the email address is
right and choose the format you want.
Also, be sure to check your junk mail folder.

Please add [email protected] to your approved senders list. It is very time consuming for us to
manually fill out the form to request approval for each individual address
and the new mailing list manager may not give us access to these requests.
