Are you receiving the eNewsletter is HTML format or text?

2. Are you receiving the eNewsletter is HTML format or text?

Some email programs allow you to send and receive messages in different formats. HTML (or Hyper Text Markup Language) allows you to view the email messages with images, colored text, etc. These are similar to viewing a webpage.

The text formatted email does not have any of the "pretty" embellishments and is straight text. Anyone can receive emails in this format, however they might not be as easy to read as a HTML eNewsletter.

The eNewsletter is sent out in both message formats. If you did not receive the eNewsletter, but would still like to read it, please visit the eNewsletter section.

1. Have you signed up to receive eNewsletters?

Busting Through AOL 9.0 - Delivering

As your AOL subscribers upgrade to AOL 9.0, they will find a number of new spam controls aimed at keeping their inbox clean. These controls create a greater distinction between e-mail from the people that AOL customers know and those they don't by putting incoming email into one of these folders: everyone, people I know, bulk senders, and/or unknown senders. For e-mail marketers like us, unless your AOL subscribers put you in the “people I know” category, chances are you are considered an “unknown sender,” and your email newsletter will not get through. In this case, being a stranger to your subscribers will start to hurt unless you take these important steps… Send your AOL subscribers a text message and make them aware of this issue. You want to do this soon, before they upgrade to 9.0, if possible. In this email, request that they a) either add your newsletter mailing address to their address book, or b) simply reply to the text message you are sending. If they reply to your email, AOL will automatically put your address in your customers' address book and once in the address book, you are considered “people I know.” So, your subscribers can either add your address themselves, or just by replying, AOL will do it automatically. Now your newsletter will avoid the bulk email folder because you are no longer considered a stranger to your subscribers.
