Readers report problems getting WEIT emails

January 29, 2023 • 8:00 am

About half a dozen readers have reported that since yesterday they haven’t received their emails of posts on this site. (I think they’re all Gmail users.)  I have no idea what’s going on, and have called the problem to the attention of my web tech person.  I’m not sure if anything can be done about this, but I’m trying.

To judge the nature of the problem, simply put a comment below if you’ve stopped getting emails rather than emailing me about it.

In the meantime, if you have another email account I would suggest using that one, or, as in the good old days, just look at the site itself online once a day (there are rarely any posts after 2 pm Chicago time, and each day begins with a Hili Dialogue post).

I hope this is a temporary inconvenience, and I’m doing my best to get it fixed. Thanks.

  1. Since I got this one by email and saw all the others listed, I must be OK. I am still looking for Russell’s teapot in space.

  2. I lost email connectivity yesterday, and being the nerd that I am, I went into WordPress to see if I could figure anything out. I found that I was no longer subscribed, so I re-subscribed. No luck – still not getting updates. Note that my email is not a gmail one, but it is an academic one that is administered by Google.

  3. Just noticed that the last email I got from WEIT was Friday, Jan 27th. 1:31 PM. (“Nick Cohen on the AP’s language recommendation”). Using Gmail.

    1. Ditto to Rick- but it’s only been a few weeks since my comments stopped coming. I have had to add ALL my info, EVERY time for about a year.

    2. Nope I am not on gmail and still am not getting the emails. I assumed it was my fault for 🤨🧐 for an unfathomable reason.

  4. Same here. No e-mails since the Nick Cohen mail on Friday. I’m on Gmail also. Have checked junk mail and any settings that might have changed, but it’s a mystery. All other e-mail seems to be coming in fine.

  5. I’m no longer getting emails. The most recent one I received was for “ Nick Cohen on the AP’s language recommendation”

  6. I have gmail and have not gotten the posts since Friday. No problem since I usually check your website a couple of times a day anyway (rather than checking the email posts).

  7. Using gmail, no posts yesterday or today. Checked spam folder, nothing there either. I don’t have another email account. I’ll get by.

  8. I’ve stopped receiving e-mails two days ago. I have an account so I’m probably the “Gmail outlier.”
