Latest newsletter, SPAM and the ebulletin

Supporters of the World Land Trust will soon be getting their printed newsletter. While we are very encouraged that large numbers are also signing up to our ebulletin, the old fashioned paper version still has a role to play. But for how much longer? If you would like to help spread the word, and have somewhere you could place some WLT brochures, or back issues of newsletters, please let us know. Ideal places include vetinerary surgeries and doctors waiting rooms -- our local surgeries were please to help us in this way. It's still the best way of reaching those who do not use the internet.

At present we still have problems to overcome with the electronic version. We sent out over 2,500 last week -- a very cost effective way of communicating with our supporters. But over 100 bounced back, probably because the recipient's server treated the newsletter as SPAM. So if you read this and think you should have received our ebulletin, you will need to resubscribe, and ensure that you make changes to your settings to allow it through your filters. We in turn will be working with those ISPs that we identify as blocking us, to ensure they realise that these are not unsolicited emails, and certainly do not have dodgy content.
