April 3, 2008 - Test Email

Loading...

Yes, I just sent a test email to all 3000 people...

I did not include a link for a reason and was seeing if you all got the email and if it is working...

Many times links in emails, get spammed and filtered...

Please report...

Any complaints, bring it up with management...

David

Also, I did run a few smaller tests already, this was the first one to the 3000 emails.. And believe me, this will not be a regular thing, you might not get another one until next year!

I will post a funny story....

[COLOR=black]Early on in my Internet career, I started gathering email addresses from my visitors.... I think I had about 5000 emails (From a contest), so I went ahead and purchased really nice email software.... [/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]The software had a built in list of emails that you should not send to... There were about 1000 or so...[/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]Luck would have it, I did not know how to use the software and somehow the Do Not Send list became part of the regular list of emails...[/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]This was 6 or 7 years ago and back then, people were shall I say "aggressive" if they got one spam email..[/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]Within minutes I had phone calls.. Not polite phone calls I might add, emails to my ISP, state government, local government, more phone calls, reply emails like you would not believe....[/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]It was a very interesting day and a part of my life I do not want to repeat..[/COLOR]

I was blacklisted!

So, I do not like to send email in large batches......

Fortunately I have had two nice replies already and they were just in support of the forum.....

I see you were all addressed by a number....

Well, that was your forum ID and not your forum name....

Mental note to make sure that is correct next time..

Hey John (2054!)

Just to make sure, does your email start with jg.....r and end with a .net?

Interesting, that is the IP of the server.. I ran a few tests and did not get that.. Must be something with your mail server...
