Changed my profile's e-mail address and confirmed it, and it shows under my profile. However I still get newsletter e-mails under the old e-mail address. I assume they're two different databases, but then how do I delete the old address from the newsletter mailing database?

I can't seem to send an instructable to the e-mail addresses I type in. What gives? I use the library computer, so my time is really short. I send things I'm interested in to my e-mail addresses to be looked at later, but I'm stuck here today trying to get the links to work. Help!

Greetings, Since changing my e-mail address to a Gmail account I have not been receiving my weekly e-mail subscription. I have even tried to re-subscribe with my Gmail address. I have repeatedly checked my spam box on both the server and my PC (I use Thunderbird as my local client). They are not going into either spam folder. Please help! I miss my weekly Instructable e-mails! Dale

Hey, I just remembered yesterday that I haven't been to Instructables in a couple of months and I used to check the site daily. Then it hit me, I haven't received an e-mail update/invitation from you guys in months. I used to get a weekly e-mail that would prompt me to return to the site. Please start e-mailing again as my memory is garbage and I NEED e-mail invitations to remember to visit sites that I like, and Instrucables is at the top of the list.

Am I doing something incorrectly? I use the iPhone e-mail app to review the weekly/daily 'FEATURED' instructable e-mails. Often I follow the link from the e-mail to review the build steps. I am frequently prompted to use the iPhone app. I have it installed, however it is not compatible with e-mail. If when prompted to start the app, the app comes up with what ever page it would normally, not the specific instructable that I am following from the 'FEATURED' e-mail. I like the app and I like the 'FEATURED' e-mails, however always prompted to use app is frustrating and not being able to follow featured items with out have my logon already in place as with the app is frustrating. I have pro to be able to read all in one-step, however when following from the 'FEATURE' e-mail I always have to select view in one or always have to log in. When killing time 1-2 minutes reading e-mails, not worth effort to log in.

I am trying to download an e-book but don't understand how to accomplish this. I chose the "How To Make Cheese", hit the download button, it tells me what app I need for what device. I want to put it on my PC, already have Acrobat, now what??

I am about to get a new internet provider and a new e-mail address. For that reason I just tried to see if I could change my e-mail in my instructables profile. Unfortunately, I quickly realised that I have neglected this house-keeping task for some while. My old address stored here is waaaaay old, which means that the confirmation e-mail from you will fall into a black hole. Please send suggestion to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Yours "all_thumbs"

Is there a way to configure my account to send me e-mail alerts whenever a new topic is created in a Group? I get such alerts when someone posts a comment about one of my I'bles, or if someone responds to a comment I've posted, but I don't get anything if a new topic is created in "my" Assistive Technology Group.

I E-mailed in a few howrs ago (and can I say, kudos on the reply speed, I got a reply within half an hour). The probelm is that I sent in one E-mail and in reply I got four, two of which were very useful human generated messages (a little odd having two, but fine) and two generic auto generate messeges, I thought I'd let you know so that, if this is unintentional, it could be sorted.

I've just received an e-mail informing me my (paid for) pro membership has expired and my account has reverted to the regular level, despite having two 3-month free extensions pending. It looks like the free subscription has kicked in as my account hasn't reverted, but the e-mail is misleading. (I believe I'm owed a year's prize membership, but I'll follow that up privately.)

Esquire is going to be celebrating its 75th year with an E Ink cover, the same stuff that's in Amazon's Kindle. There will only be 100,000 copies made for its circulation of 720,000 so grab one if you see it. Magazines always cost two or three times their cover price to make, but this should be way beyond even that. Esquire had to get its own custom battery made and the E Ink can't be too cheap either.So what message is so important for all of this? A flashing message that says, "the 21st Century Begins Now."

The following e-books show a blank page when you try to open the pdf version of the document: 1) DIY Lamps, page 2 2) Easy DIY Plushies for Geeks, page 3 3) Adhesive Projects, page 4 4) Duct Tape Bags, page 5 5) DIY Wedding, page 5 6) Gifts from the Kitchen, page 7 Another e-book's pdf version did not have a blank screen. Instead, there were a couple of lines of nonsense text and "Access Denied". The name of this e-book is: Care for Newborns, p7 Please repair these broken links. I'm sure there are other folks out there as frustrated as me. Thank you, Teresa "Tess" Weaver firstname.lastname@example.org

Why am I getting the same email subscriber update over and over again?. I get the exact same e mail every day for the last several days. And who the hell do I contact with this kind of issue? As far as I can see there is no place on the site to contact an administrator.

There are many fixes for the Xbox 360 RROD phenomenon, but all of them seem to feature the 3 light problem. Mine only has one light lit up red and I'm given the dreaded E-73 error. Will this repair instructable cover my problem as well as the 3 light RROD? Please help. I'm at my wits end about this, and can't afford a replacement at this time.

I know you guys have been putting out fires and stomping ants lately so I hate to bring it up But, It appears that the email notices are not going out about new comments or posts. I have been checking in the discussion tab and have gotten things there but no corresponding emails have been getting through. Since you fixed this already not to long ago you probably already know how to fix it again.

This is the URL that I'm sent to when I click to download the PDF or ePub for "Fun With Concrete". I can download other e-books from this site just fine. https://download.instructables.com/145/d24c/7cad169dd2c6fc5353cb3ebb8/DIY-Concrete.pdf?Expires=1342299350&Signature;=G7vabkErIDOv6kYH~-w~555PEQY~uzq~oXHLsyIQPVJjvKxUItUtoEa84rNsR5cqtSXXuJxb-1Vl6LFTcQxhYrtFT78dREJ9L3OQ00hKzTg0hjOj3E~9iIdOCZ6grCnZZ-7784OPL1IWLEe7jNm8idIudWm-8OO9NRZol4xgUzY_&Key-Pair-Id;=APKAI44RD4FFAGO7EV3A

E-ink a technology that came out of Eric's lab at MIT a few years ago was having a hard time getting traction and finding a market. It's amazing tech, no doubt. It looks and feels just like paper. A reflective visual experience is actually much nicer on the eyes. You must have seen the Amazon Kindle at a border some time. But few hackers have $350 extra to spend on something to destroy. But rejoice all ye who tinker! Esquire Magazine's October issue has an E-ink cover. And it's available at the normal magazine price, but you'd better hurry there's only 99,999 left after The Dastardly Report got their hands on one and opened it up.-BG TO BORDERS!

I am unable to access interesting topics from the newsletter directly. I get this message when I click on a link: "Due to the presence of characters known to be used in Cross Site Scripting attacks, access is forbidden. This web site does not allow Urls which might include embedded HTML tags." I am using a web mail (cox) and chrome. Your e-mail doesn't have a link on top for "if you can't see this in your browser", which would be nice as going to the home page doesn't show the current e-mail information. ie Sonic Screwdriver by MrTinkerer I've never seen the above warning before and it doesn't sound like one I want to see. ;-}
