I sent my message to the List, but I don't think it worked. Should I send it again?

No. Please wait!

Do not send a duplicate copy until you know what happened to your first message.  

Please don't think that if you did (or did not) receive a copy, then that is what happened with all of your subscribers. Your original message may just be delayed.

What could delay a message?

Many things could have happened. For example:

  • The message might have gotten stuck in your computer/email and will send later.
  • It might have made it to your Internet Provider's computers, but Mail-List.com is down.
  • The message could have been received at Mail-List.com but was rejected because you sent it from an unapproved address.
  • The message might have been sent to most Subscribers, but your Internet Provider's mail machine is currently down.

How can I verify my message was sent?

The best verification is to check the short-term email archive. If it is listed in the archive, then it was sent to everyone on your list.

For step-by-step instructions on how to check the archives, please see this post.

What if it's not in the Archives?

Please send a message to listmaster@mail-list.com requesting assistance.
