How do I unsubscribe?
You can unsubscribe
by web

I tried to subscribe using your web pages, and I get a response in my broswer saying I have been subscribed to the list, but I have never received any weather reports by email?

Did you receive a confirmation by email saying you were subscribed to the list? If not then the email address you entered into the web page was most likely wrong.

I tried to unsubscribe using your web pages, and I get a responce in my broswer saying I have been unsubscribed, but a few minutes later I get a mail message saying I am not on that list. Then the next day, I get the weather report again?
Did you select the correct list? If so,

I tried to unsubscribe using the email approach, and I get an email saying I am not a subscriber to the list?
Did you select the correct list? If so, then you are using a different email address. YOU MUST USE THE SAME ADDRESS TO UNSUBSCRIBE WITH THAT YOU USED TO SUBSCRIBE.

My email account is only temporary. (Because I am a student, or I will be changing my ISP.)
We would appreciate it if you would remove yourself from the list, or change your subscription to your new address, before your old account expires.

What happens to bounced mail / undeliverable mail?
It depends on the situation.

Bounced mail often occurs if someone attempts to subscribe to a weather report with an incorrect email address, or enters their address wrong. Given the incredible number of variations on email address, most times we can not guess what is wrong with the address. In these cases, the bad address is simply deleted from the list, and the person attempting to subscribe never knows what happened as there is no way to reach them. If a person has been on the list for some time, then email starts bouncing from their address, we will assume the user no longer exists, and remove their address from the subscription list after a few days.

Undeliverable mail results when a individual`s mail server could not be reached either because it is not running, or there are network problems. Our mail server will try for 3 days to deliver. If this problem persists, we will assume the computer and user no longer exist, and remove that person from the subscription list.

Why did I receive the email a few hours late today?
The likely reason for this is that our mail server could not reach your mail server until later than usual. Most likely cause is with the network / mail server of your internet service provider (ISP). There is nothing we can do about this. Occasionally we have problems on our end, which results in late delivery.

Why have I stopped receiving the weather mailer?
If you have been receiving the weather reports for a while with no problem, then they suddenly stop for a few days, and you are still receiving your normal internet mail, drop us a note to see what has gone wrong. You can also check with your network manager about any changes, etc. Also there will be occasional `dead` days when no reports go out to anyone do to computer or network problems.
