Email System update

    To welcome in 2022, our venerable mailpoet system broke under a flood of subscribers (nearly 12,000), moving many of our existing subscribers to unconfirmed status.

    This has been long overdue for an overhaul, so we will be moving this to a single combined system with better analytics and management tools. As a result the email may not go out on one day this week as we need to get the new system established and working.

    Please be patient, and remember we are all volunteers. No one is getting paid for running a mailing list this large, while the commercial options would be in four figures a month.

    Good luck in fixing it.

    PM'd you if you need a hand testing.

    Ok - Email System update is going well.
    We have been moving to the new system, the subscription forms have all been changed and the new emails should be going out from tomorrow for some of the lists.

    At least the first run is on a Sunday so I can panic in terror about it there and then instead of a Monday when I would normally be doing other things.
