Perhaps you accidentally unsubscribed or we don’t have your correct email address. If there are new posts in our News section during the previous week, our website automatically sends out a summary of those articles in the TVAUG Weekly News. In addition, our Secretary, Mike Carr, sends out information about upcoming meetings like our TVAUG Tuesdays online Zoom meetings on a frequent basis. Both emails are distributed via an application called MailChimp.
If you are not receiving them, one of these reasons may be why:
1) You may have accidentally Unsubscribed from our mailing list.
Down in the footer of every TVAUG Weekly News email and also in the meeting reminder emails there is a link to Unsubscribe that is required to enforce Spam laws (see MailChimp article here). It is easy to mistakenly click on that link. Heck…we’ve even had a board member who shall go nameless accidentally unsubscribe! After you unsubscribe, we can not manually add you back in from our end because of those Spam laws. To get on the mailing list again, you personally have to re-subscribe via a link that we can send you. Just shoot us an email via the Contact Us page here.
2) Our emails are ending up in your Spam or Junk folders.
Many email service providers have very aggressive Spam filters and block any emails that have links to websites embedded. CenturyLink (previously Embarqmail) and Comcast are notorious for this. If you use one of those service providers, you may want to consider switching to an Apple Mail, iCloud, or Gmail address. After doing so, make sure you update your address on our membership site here.
3) Your email address is wrong in our membership system.
Many people change their email addresses as they move from one service provider to another – e.g. Comcast to Yahoo to Gmail. We still have some old AOL addresses out there! We also get emails “bounced” back to us as undeliverable – most often because there is a typo in your address. You can login to our membership site – tvaug.net – and check your profile there. Please check it carefully and update it if necessary.
4) Your yearly membership has expired.
Our MailChimp emails only go out to members with up-to-date paid subscriptions. Typically, your email address will be removed from our email distribution list a month or two after your membership expires. Our membership chairman, Had Oshry, sends out reminders when your subscription is up for renewal. But again, if we don’t have an up-to-date email address for you, that makes things a bit difficult! So double-check our membership site to make sure your email is accurate.
Those are the 4 main reasons but there are sometimes others. So if you’re still not receiving our emails after checking those possibilities, send us an email via the Contact Us page here.
