Unless there's some kind of Official 2000AD viagra, it's not in there...

Could it be a problem with .Mac accounts?  My CAF contact email was my .Mac account which routinely bounced mail back as spam without it even getting into my junk mail.

I could try switching the Thrill-mail to an alternative email account and see if that helps.

EDIT (EDIT!  HAH!): then again, the original confirmation email got through fine when I set this up with the .Mac account.

There they are! I wouldn't have been surprised if the spam filter had kicked in from the start (not that I'm suggesting it's actually spam!) but the first couple got through okay.

Then I look and there's 3 more in spam! Fickle anti-spam-bot. ;)

Hope I get one, just had to re-subscribe as I seem to have been removed from the list. Haven't had one for the last couple of months and they've not been erroneously delivered to my spam file either..

How odd. Sometimes ISPs do take issue with Mailchimp but it usually gets sorted. Let me know if they continue to not arrive.

Oh. Mailchimp decides where you are based on your IP address. If you're getting the wrong one, try unsubscribing and then subscribing again to see if it sorts it.

I'm so broken. This damned comic has broken me. I've said similar things before but when Molch-R named 'Mailchimp' my first thought was 'How odd, why didn't he give them a droid name?', it took a while before it occured to me its probably the name of the software used...

this bloody comic has broken me... damnit!

NECROPOST! I've given the Thrill-Mail a little redesign - do let me know what you think, especially whether you think the white background works/doesn't work.
: Re: THRILL-MAIL - the new 2000 AD e-mail newsletter
: IndigoPrime 31 October, 2018, 08:20:23 PM
I just loaded it up against the previous one. In all honesty, I preferred the black, largely because it nicely frames the content in my email client, and that's useful on a larger display (I mostly read email on an iMac) that's predominantly white elsewhere. It also stood out against other messages I receive, which are mostly text-based.

Other observations: in my email client (Apple Mail), the footer test was white and therefore unreadable (against a white background); none of the previous footer links were there (podcast; apps; etc.)
