    Missing Daily Archives

    Is there a problem with the Daily Archives emailings? For the last five days I have only received between one and three mailings out of the eleven or so subscriptions I have set up. I checked my subscription list and nothing appears to be out of sorts.

    <UL><LI>8/29/03 - received all subscribed Archives
    <LI>8/30/03 - received the following:
    1. <LI>Lounge Matters<LI>Software Finds & Wants<LI>Windows 2000
    <LI>8/31/03 - received the following:
    1. <LI>Lounge Matters<LI>Software Finds & Wants
    <LI>9/1/03 - received Windows 2000 only
    <LI>9/2/03 - received the following:
    1. <LI>Internet Explorer<LI>General Office Solutions<LI>General Windows Solutions
    <LI>9/3/03 - received the following:
    1. <LI>Windows 2000<LI>General Windows Solutions
    [/list]

    Are your archives still coming through erratically?

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by d_rasley on 09-Sep-03 20:49. Status update)</P>Yes, I'm still receiving only 3 or 4 per day max; today's batch was VBA, Win2000, and General Office. I asked our tech at the office if we had some sort of spam filter in place that could be interfering with receiving the Lounge messages and was told that there are no filters. Just for the sake of argument though I'm going to switch over my subscription email address and see what happens.

    Having switched my email address, I received all my subscribed archives. Next test is to switch back to my regular address and see if I still get them all or if I once again start getting shorted. That should tell me if there's something at my end that isn't working right -- or not being disclosed.

    Re: Missing Daily Archives

    For argument's sake, were any messages being bounced back as undeliverable or were they just vanishing into the ether without a trace?

    I'm following things up with our tech today. If I miss out on an archive or few it won't be the end of the world, but I think this is a sign that there's some serious filtering going on. And, since the archives that are not getting through change on a daily basis I have to wonder if the filter (assuming that there is one) is performing properly.

    Claude knows the finer details of the result of mail bouncing, but I believe you are automatically disabled from receiving them if they do.
    As you can still receive them, I would therefore suspect they were not bouncing...
