Thanks for that info Dean... unfortunately its the latter. I add them
and on the add subscriber screen I made sure the box was checked that
said "send email notification" and then after I added everybody
(including my own email) I got the 6-7 or so emails that showed the
subscribers being added to the list. I'm guessing they got the message
that they were added to the list.... my email address of my own that I
added got one.
However, when I post the list the email address I added doesn't get
any of the messages... and another susbcriber notified me that he
hadn't gotten it either. So it seems somehow, even though I've done it
the same way before, nobody is getting them. I may very well be
missing something I did last time... I just don't remember it being
all that complicated because my last list I had up and running in 10
minutes or so after I got the creation email.
