    Default Email delivery of WestHost Webmaster Connection Newsletter

    Months ago Westhost changed the way the "WestHost Webmaster
    Connection" newsletter was delivered. We used to get the full text
    of the newsletter delivered via Email. Now we just get the links
    delivered via Email.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I find I'm not reading the
    newletters much with this new system. I much prefer the full
    text delivered via Email. I prefer the plain text format via email
    because I can conveniently copy and paste important info as
    I'm reading. It's also better to have the full text in Email because
    I automatically have an archive of all the newsletters that I can
    search on at a future date.

    Anyone else share my views and prefer to have the full
    text of the newsletters delivered via email?

    Are you reading the newsletters more or less with this
    new delivery system?

    I am pretty sure I get the full text (unless I misunderstand you) but then again I receive them in HTML format. Do you mean the "For details go to:" links? Those seem to be used for promotions more then anything. In fact it seems that is about all the Newsletter is of recent. I am not finding it very useful and tend to do a quick scan then delete.

    I read it and find it useful to know what upgrades are available from the Site Manager, however I find it lacking when they announce new applications.

    For example, when they added Ruby on Rails they failed to explain how it might be useful to existing customers. I haven't had time to go and explore how Ruby works and so may be missing out.

    Quote below is what I'm receiving via email in recent months.
    I used to get the full newsletter in plain text format with
    embedded links on some articles to other useful info.
    I just assumed the example below is is how everyone else
    is receiving it too in recnet months. Eudora v6.2 is my Email
    client. --pete--

    Oops! Confusing Client Connection with Webmaster Connection. Disregard my earlier comment.

    It looks like you are not getting anything useful at all . Did you just post the Header ?

    I too was confusing the two. Just to clarify for others here is the link to the WestHost Webmaster Connection since it does not seem to be listed anywhere at the moment on the WH (at least I could not find it). That is a whole different thing then the WestHost Client Connection which can be found archived here in the forum under the Company Info > News / Announcements section. Thought they used to be archived like WH Webmaster Connection but can't find it at the moment.

    No I did not post the header because it contains too much of
    my personal info. The main thing I was trying to show is that
    Westhost does not seem to send the newsletter anymore.
    Just the links to an online version and links to unsubscribe
    or subscribe. ---pete---

    NO Oops!
    I get the same problem with the Webmaster Connection newsletter.
    The quote below is typically what I receive. It's bascially a blank
    message with links to an online version and links to subscribe or
    unsubscribe. ---pete---

    I think I understand what you mean now. It is a multipart email with both the HTML and plaintext included but for some reason WH has things set up so that the plaintext version does not simply remove images and HTML formateing but gives you links to the original archive. You have your email client set to not display HTML correct?

    No. My Email client (Eudora v6.2) will display HTML.
