Post subject:  Newsletter

Hello all,

Everyone should have just received the first BA newsletter. This one was mainly a test so if it doesnt work properly please let me know. I need to know your browser, who does your email (hotmail or outlook etc).

Thanks,

Andy (Admin)

It says Hot Linking Banned in the image, is that normal?

No its not, I thought id fixed that issue, obviously not. Ill work on it. Using the link directly in your browser should fix the issue.

I was thinking that it could be the image you used to test... :wink:

Hmm, I didn't see that message, the image showed up for me (okay, to be honest, Thunderbird had initially blocked the image, but after turning that off, everything was fine).

I think that's because I use gmail, and I don't use any email client. So the server thinks that gmail is hotlinking the image.

Thats why it worked for me then, I tested this with Outlook.

Yey :) I solved it by making a sub-domain to get around the hotlinking issue and adding in Bcc for everyones e-mail.

Worked perfect here. It's really too bad about the bloody spamming. All good forums come under fire though.

At least it indicates our forum is of some interest, according to prx984 :)
Working fine for me (the newsletter, I mean).

I don't know if this matters, but the image is way to wide for my gmail... just to let you know.

Hmm, its nice, but you shouldn't put everyone's addresses in the To field. Some people like to keep their email addresses private. I'd use the BCC field, as it does the same thing as To but it doesn't show you everyone else's addresses.

I have now. I didn't realise it did it on the first one till I was told about 10 times by numerous people :) Its now Bcc only so you wont see everyone, hence why I sent it out twice.

That was my immediate response via PM...
I can see some emails in there that I know were private,mine included,
& one that belongs to Zammis half way down... :?

I do appologise for that. I didnt realise it actually sent them out. Maybe it would be a good idea to keep private e-mails addresses private though, instead of using them on a forum. Lets just hope nobody uses them for, shall we say, fraudulant purposes. Remember its only the forum members who got it, so its kept to a group of people.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that the newsletter was marked as spam, even though the other emails I get from this site aren't.

I think newsletter is often a blacklisted word.
