A Fix for Trouble Receiving Daily Digests

After a thorough examination of the digest process, our system administrator and our Drupal developer have applied two patches that we believe solve the missing digest problem. We suspect there will be an unusually large digest in the affected groups tonight as the system get caught up. If you find that you are still not receiving digests through the weekend please contact the Help Desk immediately: help@mail.h-net.msu.edu

RE: Email Digest Problems

Greetings H-Net Subscribers,

We have received a few emails to the Help Desk about problems with daily digest emails, specifically, that there are individual posts that are being left out of the digest. We are working to resolve the issue and will post a follow-up announcement once we have taken care of it.

Thanks for your patience.

How to Crosspost H-Net Reviews

Crossposting reviews from around H-Net is a commonplace on our networks.  Recent improvements to the system make it possible to crosspost without the bother and the unpredictable results of cutting and pasting through different browsers and platforms.  Inserting rather than pasting a review also ensures that the review remains intact as it is distributed.

Troubleshooting: Safari

Hi All,

I have trouble finding the options I need as an editor under Safari. While everything looks fine in Firefox, Safari does not provide any of the options such as "manage posts" and so on.

Best regards,

Joern, Editor at H-Sport

[Joern: Safari is a troublesome browser in the Commons.  There may be some workarounds; write to help@mail.h-net.msu.edu and give specific examples.  The staff can test on their Safari versions and may be able to help. Peter.]
