We are happy to announce that we have the capability to deliver your newsletter by email! For those who prefer to receive email rather than paper, you may sign up for e-newsletters at www.americana.net. Please be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your trusted senders, or your newsletter may get blocked by your ISP’s spam filter. Also be sure to check your spam folder. Note that you will receive a confirmation email asking that you verify that you subscribed; simply click the link to confirm and you’re done!
Once you begin to receive your newsletter via email, drop us a line at email@example.com and ask that paper delivery be discontinued. If at any time your email becomes undeliverable, we will add you back to the paper mailing list.
Interesting stuff and questions about e-newsletters
Why is my entire address required when signing up? Without this info, we won’t know which show site email to send you. After all, getting overwhelmed with useless email is no fun; you wouldn’t want to receive emails for shows not in your area (but if you do, drop us a line and we’ll be happy to oblige!). Also, if your email bounces, we’ll know where to send a paper newsletter.
Why get a paper newsletter if I signed up for e-newsletter? While email is efficient and environmentally friendly, it’s not a perfect science. Many factors can cause an email to “bounce” (which means you didn’t receive it). To be sure you don’t miss any of our shows, we will send a printed newsletter until you ask that we discontinue paper. If at any time your email becomes undeliverable, we’ll return you to the paper system. Note that organization emails often bounce because of their strict spam filter policies, so it’s best to use a personal email if you have one. Examples of such addresses are those ending in .org, .gov, .mil, .edu, etc.
What if I no longer want email? Simply unsubscribe any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the e-newsletter, or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you’d rather receive a paper newsletter again and we’ll take care of it for you. Please be sure to use “unsubscribe” rather than blocking the email; it makes our e-newsletter provider much happier!
