[I'd love to receive your comments. For example, tell me how you found my site.]

NB: When you request a subscription you will receive a confirming email. You must reply to that confirming email to start the subscription. This isn't hard. Just reply. That is all you need to do. This is for your protection to ensure you are really subscribing yourself and that no one else is subscribing you. Your subscription will not start until you reply to the confirming email.

Federal COPPA Compliance Notice: A law called COPPA went into effect in April, 2000. The United States Government doesn't want me to collect "personal information" about "children". You agree that by requesting a subscription to this email newsletter, you are telling me that you are more than 13 years old.

I publish an small, simple, irregular ezine called HEFS Bulletin.

I use this ezine to advise people about the Huggins Email Form Script – issues, bugs, fixes and enhancements and newly released versions available for download.

ISSN: International Standard Serial Number

The Library of Congress has advised me that because this ezine is very irregular, it would be inappropriate to assign it an International Standard Serial Number, or ISSN. Thus this ezine has no ISSN.

Whitelist Information

Because ISPs and Spam Filters have sometimes blocked my ezines you may want to add my ezine to your Whitelist. If you do not do this, your ISP or Spam Filter may block my emails and you may not receive your subscription issues.

A Whitelist is a list of addresses you do not want your ISP or Spam Filter to block.

When you add addresses to your Whitelist you are telling your ISP or Spam Filter that "no matter what", it should let this address send you mail.

I have created a tool to tell you what addresses to add and how to add them:

Send a blank email to this address:
HEFS-Bulletin-Help@JamesSHuggins.com

You will receive instructions back (including the subscription email address, unsubscription email address, Whitelist Test email address and SPAM Test email address.).

Note that sending this email does not subscribe you, or unsubscribe you or trigger the whitelist or spam test. It just tells my system to send you instructions on how to do all these things.

Testing showed that putting the actual trigger addresses on my web site caused me to get a ton of "requests" that were really spam. The simple way to stop this is to have you request the info this way.

Spam Test Information

Do you know if your emails are being filtered?

Do you know how they are being filtered?

Do you know if you've updated your Whitelist correctly?

Because so many of my subscribers did not know whether their emails were being filtered, I created a spam test tool.

When you use this tool, my system will send you 5 emails:

  • First, an email to start the test
    This email is "plain vanilla" and won't be filtered
     
  • Second, three emails ... one for each address the ezine uses
    These emails are packed with spam phrases. (How packed? Spam Assassin gives it a score of 110+ and remember, Spam Assassin thinks a 5 is spam!)
     
  • Third, an email to end the test
    Again, it is "plain vanilla" and won't be filtered

If you get all 5, you know you will receive all the ezine mailings.

But if some of the three middle test emails (with lots of spam trigger phrases) do not go through, you will know you have a mail delivery problem.

The emails will explain in more detail how it works and how to interpret the results.

I recommend running this test whenever you subscribe or change subscribe addresses, and also after you whitelist my addresses to be sure your whitelisting works.

Send a blank email to this address:
HEFS-Bulletin-Help@JamesSHuggins.com

You will receive instructions back (including the subscription email address, unsubscription email address, Whitelist Test email address and SPAM Test email address.).

Note that sending this email does not subscribe you, or unsubscribe you or trigger the whitelist or spam test. It just tells my system to send you instructions on how to do all these things.

Testing showed that putting the actual trigger addresses on my web site caused me to get a ton of "requests" that were really spam. The simple way to stop this is to have you request the info this way.
