Several readers reported not getting their issue last week. Often there's a common thread (AOL subscribers, for example), but not this time. I've confirmed that their addresses are still on the list, but sometime problems occur. Sometimes the email ends up in a spam folder. Some folks have switched to using a Gmail account, and that has had some success.
Another way to get your weekly E-Sylum fix is on the Numismatic Bibliomania Society web site. Each issue is archived there in full shortly after publication. Bookmark this page:

Another thing that may be happening to some people is that their subscription could be getting disabled due to excessive bounces. A "bounce" is when an email message is sent to your account, but somehow doesn't get thru. A "bounce" message bounced back to the sender, in this case our email list provider, Binhost.
In recent weeks I've been getting bounce notifications myself. Example:
Your membership in the mailing list Esylum has been disabled due to
excessive bounces The last bounce received from you was dated
30-Aug-2009. You will not get any more messages from this list until
you re-enable your membership.
So I wrote to Binhost support:
I've been getting these confirmation email messages, but every time I
try to confirm (either by clicking the link or replying by email) I
get told the confirmation string is outdated. But it shouldn't be - I
always respond promptly. What's happening?
Binhost support writes:
This is a known bug -- the links don't work, but if you log into your membership page, you can confirm that way. We know about this and are working on it, but have not yet solved it.
So bear with us if you'd been getting these. Email me if you have problems and I can refer you to Binhost support if needed. Thanks, everyone.
