A note about e-mail subscriptions

If you recieve The Molecular Ecologist by e-mail, you’re far from alone — we have almost 650 subscribers recieving e-mailed posts via the Feedburner service. (How do you know if you’re one of them? You are if you’re reading this in your e-mail inbox, as a message sent by noreply+feedproxy@google.com.) Feedburner has been a pretty reliable service for this over the years, but it does some things that are a little less than ideal, mangling the formatting and leaving off critical information like the byline.

So a little while ago, we replaced the Feedburner e-mail signup in the sidebar with a signup form for e-mails delivered by a WordPress plugin. The plugin sends Molecular Ecologist posts as e-mail messages with formatting better preserved, and with author bylines right up front; people have started signing up for that service, and we’re ready to make the transition official. We’re going to discontinue the Feedburner e-mails, which means that if you’re one of the people receiving them, you need to sign up for the new system to keep getting TME by e-mail.

Signing up for the new e-mail system is as simple as navigating to www.molecularecologist.com and entering your e-mail address in the box in sidebar on the right — you should get a confirmation e-mail sent to that address immediately. Once you’ve confirmed your new subscription by clicking the link in that confirmation e-mail, you’re all set to recieve TME in the new, better format.
