When It Rains It Pours

When it rains it pours. We’re dealing with a lot of adversity right now, not the least of which is the fact our InfoAve Premium newsletter is being blocked by Gmail. Well, actually it’s not our newsletter that’s being blocked, it’s the newsletter service we use that’s causing our InfoAve Premium newsletter to be blocked by Gmail. Our Premium newsletter is the lifeblood of our small business. It lets us keep in touch with you – our friends and subscribers.

We are most likely going to have to change newsletter providers. We’ve been using the same company for over a decade. But they’re not getting the job done and we things are not getting any better as less than 50% of our Premium subscribers are getting the newsletter. We’ll get this fixed but shopping for a provider we can trust takes time. Darcy and I have spent hours on it already. Our goal is having this issue resolved before the end of this month.

Then there’s the secure server issue. Our site is not on a secure server – and it does not need to be. Read our article about this here. But most people don’t understand that a secure server does not mean a safe site. Many sites that distribute malware and software bundles that distribute malware are on secure servers. For example,  Softonic, which takes legitimate freeware and bundles it with PUPs, questionable software and malware runs on a secure server. So when you visit Softonic you’ll see the word “Secure” and the famous “Lock” icon in your browser’s address bar. But the word “secure” and the lock does not mean that that site is safe. Because a site is running on a secure server does not necessarily mean it is a safe site. But the public perception is that it does and so we’re reluctantly deciding on the best, least expensive way to switch our site to secure servers – not because it will make it safer, but because it will help those who don’t know us as well as you do, feel safer.

Trying to find the right newsletter provider takes time. We want to make sure we choose the best service we can afford. And trying to figure out the best way to switch our site over to secure servers without interruption takes a lot of time. Trying to do all this while to continuing to help as many people as we can with their computers is a daunting task.

But we’ve always put our subscribers and friends first.  And we’re not going to change that.

So, we’re asking for your help – again.  There are many ways you can help us to continue our mission of helping everyone who calls on us for help. Each week we spend hours answering questions via email and only a few of these questions and answers make it into our InfoAve Premium newsletter. We’re happy to help as much as we can.

    I use Gmail and I have a filter set up for your email to not be sent to spam. Though it tells me so at the top of the email page it is where it is supposed to be. thanks again for all you both do for all of us who subscribe.
