SUMMARY: No summary available. || |
OK I was holding off because I'm a nice person and not a whistle blower, but this thing is been dragging on for a week now and it's time to give a quick warning. If you are a SparkLIST client, you've probably been experiencing a higher-than-normal bounce rate for email broadcasts this week because they have (through no fault of their own) been blocked by Earthlink as a potential spammer. Let me note that SparkLIST is *not* a spammer and is infamous for booting clients who even secretly dream about spamming. It's all just a vast tech misunderstanding.
That said, your Earthlink and Earthlink-hosted-domain (mainly small biz) email readers have not been getting anything you sent through SparkLIST for at least the past week. If this keeps up we are considering opening a backup account with another reputable broadcast vendor, stripping the Earthlink names from our lists and sending issues out that way.
Yeah, Earthlink names are only 3-10% of our lists, but in this economy, I don't want to lose 3-10% of my potential issue revenues. Now is the time to eke out every scrap of possible revenue you possibly can because who knows how much worse this downturn is going to get.
