HEFS Bulletin -
Script Update Notices 

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:

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.

List Management Information


My Use of Gammadyne Mailer

I began using the Gammadyne Mailer to manage and broadcast my ezines in late 2002. It is possible to use it very simply, almost out of the box. But it also features a very complete internal programming language to let you do just about anything you want. And, it keeps all the information on my PC in an Access database, where I know the information is secure and under my control.

It is screaming software. I strongly recommend Gammadyne Mailer.

PS: You can test drive my implementation of the Gammadyne Mailer just to see how it works. I created an ezine named TestZine to let me test my programming. You can test it too. Subscribe and receive a "sample issue". You can even try out some of the tests I perform, like submitting a subscription request twice in a row, or subscribing when I'm already subscribed or unsubscribing when I'm not subscribed, just to see how it handles these "special conditions". Just go to my TestZine page.

COPPA - Child Privacy Info

In order to subscribe to any of my ezines and mailing lists you must give me your email address (duh!). A federal law called COPPA (the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998) considers this "personal information". and imposes lots of conditions. So, I am posting this notice on this page to comply with that law.

Rather than attempt to obtain parental permission and maintain the wazillions of records required by COPPA, I just don't collect personal data from anyone under 13. If I somehow discover that someone under 13 has subscribed, I unsubscribe that person.
