We've received a few complaints about problems with the new format of the newsletters. One person has Vista and cannot read the html format but a few others are having similar problems running XP. If anyone has any ideas what might be happening, and how people can correct the problem, please post below.
As I'm sure everyone has heard, the Pacific Northwest was hit by a severe windstorm on Thursday night (12/14/06). The homes and office of Thriftyfun lost electricity and some trees fell down in Susan's yard. Everyone is safe but there will be no newsletters or new posts until the power is back. It might be as long as 5 days, according to the power company. Feel free to post or answer questions or submit tips and recipes.
Update: Hi, after 36 hours without power we are trying to get going again here at ThriftyFun. Luckily one of the staff was with power so she activated feedback but was unable to do much else. And luckily only fences, hedges and my neighbors birdbath were the casualties of the trees falling.
Thanks for your kinds words!
Susan and the Thriftyfun Staff
We have received many emails asking where the daily newsletters have been this week. There have been circumstances out of our control that delayed them. We should get them sent as soon as possible. All of us at ThriftyFun apologize for the delays and hope to be back on track soon.
Our last newsletter of this year will be on Tuesday, December 23, 2008, for the Christmas holiday. We will start back up on January 2nd. Happy Holidays to all!
We've been hit by spam attacks to our list server and it has really messed up our newsletter sending.
To read what you have missed go to:
We've been sending them but there are many that aren't receiving them. We are working on other ways to send them.
Hopefully, this will be fixed soon.
Have you been missing your ThriftyFun Newsletters? If you have, here is some information from AOL about the possible causes. To read the ones you missed, click on the little Daily Thrifty Tips link to the right. ---- >
Have the AOL member check their spam folder.
When email contains certain characteristics or the member has previously marked the mail as spam it will cause the email to go directly into their Spam Folder. If the email is in the Spam Folder have the member add the sending email address to their address book. This will prevent your mail from going to the spam folder. (For members who are using an older version of America Online please see the next step.)
