SUMMARY: In theory, I send out Universe Today every weekday (Mon-Fri) some time during the day. I do occasionally miss a day, but for the last year or so, that's been pretty rare. If you find the newsletter just stops coming, you should be suspicious that your Internet service provider has gotten a little over-zealous in its attempts to block SPAM. This newsletter has images in it, and allows you to unsubscribe - and these are also key features of a lot of unsolicited mail.
So, if Universe Today doesn't show up in your mailbox, wait a couple of days and then check the website. If the homepage hasn't been updated, then it means I'm not working on the website... bad Fraser! But if I am being industrious and the homepage is current, that means the newsletter is going out. Time for you to nag your Internet service provider.
Check to see if the email is being dumped into your junk mail folder. It's got a different name in Hotmail, AOL, Yahoo, etc. If it's not there, you should have some way make sure that mail from me is never considered SPAM. If that doesn't seem to be working, you'll have to contact your ISP through email or on the phone and let them know that you really miss your subscription to Universe Today. Send me an email and I can try and work on them from my end as well.
P.S. I've getting reports from Yahoo folks that the newsletter is being blocked as of April 14th. If anyone knows what happened, please enlighten me so I can fix it.
