Are you getting our club’s emails?

Sep 20, 2022

Have you stopped receiving our club’s email announcements?  Perhaps you accidentally unsubscribed or we don’t have your correct email address.  If there are new posts in our News section during the previous week, our website automatically sends out a summary of those articles in the TVAUG Weekly News – typically on Mondays. In addition, we send out notices about upcoming meetings like our TVAUG Tuesdays online Zoom meetings – typically on the Friday before. Both emails are distributed via an application called MailChimp.

We also use MailChimp to send out your yearly membership renewal reminders. If you are not receiving them, one of these reasons may be why:

1) You may have accidentally Unsubscribed from our mailing list.
Down in the footer of every MailChimp email that we send there is a link to Unsubscribe that is required to enforce Spam laws (see MailChimp article here).  It is easy to mistakenly click on that link.  Heck…we’ve even had a board member who shall go nameless accidentally unsubscribe!  After you unsubscribe, we can not manually add you back in from our end because of those Spam laws.  Our MailChimp emails obviously only go out to members who are still subscribed.  If you Unsubscribed, you not only get a message asking you why right after you do so, but you also get a warning that you will no longer be receiving membership renewal notices.

To get back on the mailing list again,  just shoot us an email via the Contact Us page here.

2) Our emails are ending up in your Spam or Junk folders.
Many email service providers have very aggressive Spam filters and block any emails that have links to websites embedded. CenturyLink (previously Embarqmail) and Comcast are notorious for this.  If you use one of those service providers for your email account, you may want to consider switching to an Apple Mail, iCloud, or Gmail address.  After doing so, make sure you update your address on our membership site here or let use know via the Contact Us page here.

3) Your email address is wrong in our membership system.
Many people change their email addresses as they move from one service provider to another – e.g. Comcast to Gmail.  We even still have some old AOL and Yahoo addresses out there – shame on you!  We also get emails “bounced” back to us as undeliverable – most often because there is a typo in your address.  You can login to our membership site – tvaug.net – and check your profile there.  Please check it carefully and update it if necessary.


Those are the main reasons but there are sometimes others.  So if you’re still not receiving our emails after checking those possibilities, send us an email via the Contact Us page here.
