Note to H-Diplo Subscribers on missing e-mail notifications

Diane N. Labrosse's picture

Dear H-Diplo subscribers:

As many of you have discovered, the H-Diplo e-mail notification system has been offline for the past ten days or so. After an upgrade on Labor Day weekend, the H-Net Commons platform experienced technical as well as performance issues. As a result, e-mail notifications have not been sent to subscribers since that time.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of the H-Net staff, as of this evening most of the problems seem to have been resolved.

Individual notifications are now being issued and sent to our subscribers; please note, however, that the daily e-mail digests are still not functioning properly.  We hope that this final issue will be resolved in the next few days. Announcements, calls for papers, etc, that were submitted to H-Diplo since the beginning of September will be published over the next few days.

We hope that our backlog of September publications will be re-issued once the system is fully restored.

In the meantime, the H-Diplo website is functioning. In future cases where e-mail notifications fail, it is possible to find our publications on the website at:

Here are the links to the H-Diplo publications that were published from 2-9 September 2019.
