Anyone Else Stop Getting the BitsduJour Daily Emails?
« on: October 13, 2008, 03:04:40 PM »
I just re-subscribed at their web site. I was getting their email announcing their current deal every day up until about a week or so ago. Then they just stopped. I scrub my junk mail folders regularly and do not empty them until I give the contents a quick review.

Also, I was actually getting two such emails daily: at two separate email addresses! I guess that I had at some point subscribed using both emaill addresses. Plus my Fastmail account messages are auto-fetched by a Gmail account (for search purposes), so I actually saw three daily.

The daily emails to both addresses stopped at the same time, so if one got caught in a spam folder and I missed it, it is hard to believe that I missed it again for the other account. I have a feeling that they somehow purged their mailing list - either accidentally or intentionally.

Just seems like a weird occurrence that all emails from them have stopped being delivered to two separate email accounts at the exact same time! (Or maybe it was something I said?!?  :D  )

Thanks!

Jim

I'm not getting their mails, but I do subscribe to the RSS feed. Considering removing it, though, since I've never been interested in anything they offered :)

Thanks f0dder.

I don’t make many purchases there but have gotten the occasional gem from them. E.g., Ultra Recall Pro at 60% off regular price. I had considered Ultra Recall in the past but the price was always too high for me to satisfy my curiosity. But at a 60% discount it was well worth it! As I said, not too often but maybe two or three purchases a year.

Nico from BDJ here, we've had some email problems starting last week, and today we think we resolved them. What happened was that spammers were using out 'Send to a Friend' form to relay spam, clogging up our servers. Today we plugged the holes and normal service should have been resumed.

Thanks Nico.

I went and subscribed again, so who knows how many I'll get when your emails start rolling out again.

BTW, mine all stopped at least two or three weeks ago, not just last week. Just thought I would let you know.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the reply Jim, you should get emails tonight at midnight, if you could let me know then that would help.
