It’s often easy to forget the lessons you learn along the way that others may not yet have come across. The beauty of someone being just that bit further down the road than someone else beginning their journey.
Recently a VA tried to subscribe to my new site VA-Announcements but her address was knocked back as potentially fake by the subscription service. I tried but had the same problem so contacted the people who run the service and they sorted the problem out.
The VA in question emailed me thanking me for going above and beyond on assisting her. My response was this:
You’re most welcome. If you had a problem then others might too, so I like to get things like that resolved.
I also know that info@, admin@ and sales@ cause problems with services like yahoogroups as they are potential addresses for spammers to try.
Perhaps you need to try firstname.lastname@example.org or similar and that would be fine I’m sure.
Her response was:
That’s an excellent suggestion for an email address! And thank you for the info about those other formats. Newbies such as I need to know those things!
So, something for you to think about when planning your email addresses. KMT
