Ezine Troubleshooting

^ Back to top

Are you receiving your monthly E-zine regularly? If not, please read this important message.

Due to the addition of stricter spam filters on a variety of email clients, some subscribers tell us that they are no longer receiving their E-zine; a publication that they wish to receive. We'd like to let you know there are various reasons why this usually occurs....and it is easy to correct!

  1. Is your email address current and accurate?
  2. Not receiving your ezine? Make sure you check your spam and/or bulk folder, it is most likely there. This may require that you go to your online webmail or look in a folder in your inbox. If you use myarbonne.com email, please check your junk mail or contact them to disable your spam filter.
  3. Are you having trouble forwarding the ezine? When you receive the ezine, test it to make sure it works for you. 1.) "Forward" ezine. 2.) Make sure that you do not hit "reply" as the links will not work. 3.) Delete my information before you forward. 4.) When you receive the ezine, test it to make sure it works for you.
  4. Are you having trouble forwarding the ezine in Microsoft Outlook? Go under Tools - Options-Mail Format and uncheck the reference to MS Word for editing and Rich Text.
  5. When I forward with Microsoft Outlook the font is HUGE, what do I do? Under Option- Mail Format- uncheck Word 2003 to edit
  6. Can't see images? Make sure that you do not have your setting on to block HTML images. This is very common with Outlook Express (go to Tools-Security- uncheck the download images box) and MS Outlook. You should be notified in the header of the email if images are being blocked by your email.
  7. When I forward my ezine there are spaces between my name, email, website, etc. Why? When you received the ezine, there were no lines. When you hit forward the spaces will be apparent, but once it sends, the lines will disappear.
  8. Are you using Spam Filtering Software or have you upgraded your Spam Filtering Software? If you are using spam filtering software, or if you have upgraded it recently, you can enter the sender email address into your filtering software "whitelist" or "approved sender" list to ensure you continue to receive your Monthly E-zine and emails.If you are using spam filtering software for personal use, please enter the Monthly E-zine email as an approved sender.
  9. Are you a Yahoo.com, Hotmail.com, or AOL.com user?
    Yahoo.com: Make sure you have the correct settings to forward emails:
    Go to the upper right hand corner and click on Options- General Preferences-Message Actions. Make sure that your forward is set like this:
    Forwarding Messages: Forward as inline text Original messages will be copied directly into the body of your outgoing messages.
    Hit forward. Delete the information from the person that sent it to you. Before you forward, make sure you delete the "extra" pictures that are attached - right under Subject, it will save Remove. Yahoo wants to forward as well as attach the pictures associated. Hit Send.

    Hotmail.com: Hit Forward, you will see a few attachments in the attachment box, Remove them. This will not affect the body of the email, it will just remove those attached jpg files. Delete the information from the person that sent it to you. Hit Send.

    Aol.com: Go to aol.com to send out your emails, do not use your control panel aol. Hit Forward and delete the information from the person that sent it to you. You will also see that aol puts all of the pictures at the bottom of the ezine. Just click on each little picture, and hit delete, as not to send those attachments. Hit Send.
