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:

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.
