A number of our readers access The E-Sylum directly on the Numismatic Bibliomania Society web site; new issues are generally available there each Monday morning. There is no paywall, fee, or membership requirement.
All issues for this year are available here:
The E-Sylum Archive Volume 21 - 2018 (http://www.coinbooks.org/club_nbs_esylum_v21.html)
The traditional way of receiving The E-Sylum is by email. The regular edition goes out each Sunday night to over 5,000 readers.
This week a reader asked:
Could I have been dropped from the E-Sylum distribution list? I haven’t received it at least the last two weeks.
I thoughtfully replied:
We hate you. We took your address off the list, stomped on it and set it on fire. Don't ask how we put the fire out.
Actually, you're still on the mailing list. Only a couple reports of non-receipt this week.
Here are the instructions which may help.
Sometimes readers report not receiving their E-Sylum issue by email. If that happens to you, first check your spam folders to see if it’s ending up there. Next, please check with me to confirm your address is on our
If you are on our list and just not seeing your issues at all, it could be that your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is blocking it for some reason. If your email address ends in "Comcast.net", then your ISP
is Comcast. Contact your ISP's help desk about the problem, and ask them to "whitelist" the following: firstname.lastname@example.org, our server (lists.capalon.com) and my email address email@example.com.
On a different issue Rob Galiette writes:
This week’s copy was truncated after the HARRY BENNETT WILBER (1872-1945) article. Any suggestions concerning how to obtain the balance of the edition?
Sometimes email readers will have a little link at the bottom that you can click on to see the rest of the email, but it depends on what program you are using.
There is a link at the TOP of The E-Sylum for reading the issue online, but it won't work until Monday morning, after our webmaster has had time to put the issue on the web site.
The word "truncation" came up in another context this week; see the next article in this issue for that.
We also have an E-Sylum edition which goes by email to members of the American Numismatic Association. ANA Members control their E-Sylum subscription through their preferences page on their ANA account. If
you're an ANA member and are not getting a copy of the E-Sylum ANA Edition, you might have at one point responded "don't send me any emails". You may have to log in and reset that preference, or
specifically turn on The E-Sylum mailings. If you have trouble logging in or locating your preferences, the ANA Membership support folks can help.
