Mailing List
The Heidi and Frank Mailing List is the official newsletter of It is free to subscribe to the newsletter. You do not need to be a Premium Member to receive the newsletter.

You must subscribe to the newsletter in order to receive it. If you have successfully completed the subscription process but you are still not receiving the newsletter, there could be several reasons why:

  • Storage space
    Has your email inbox run out of storage space? Clean out your inbox to make room for new messages.
  • Spam filtering
    Do you use a spam filtering program or software? Make sure that has been added to your whitelist or address book. Because our newsletter system is automated, we cannot respond to human reply request systems such as Matador or EarthLink's Spam Filter. You must set these systems to allow newsletter/mailing list deliveries. Otherwise, after bouncing twice, your email address will be removed from our mailing list.

    Your incoming email may be filtered and you might not even know it. Almost all high-volume ISPs such as Yahoo!, Hotmail, MSN, and Gmail automatically filter for spam and put messages suspected of being spam into a "Bulk" or "Spam" folder. Check this folder for our newsletter and identify it as "Not Spam." This should prevent the newsletter from being accidentally thrown out in the future.
  • Heavy Internet traffic
    Sometimes heavy Internet traffic can prevent us from successfully delivering the newsletter to you. If you suspect that messages aren't reaching you because of problems with Internet congestion, consult your ISP directly for additional help.
  • Premium Membership
    If you were subscribed to the newsletter prior to becoming a Premium Member, sometimes your Premium Membership can reset your newsletter preferences. To fix this, unsubscribe from the newsletter and then re-subscribe.
  • Changed email address
    Perhaps you have changed your email address and we are unaware of the new address. To fix this, subscribe to the newsletter using your new address.
  • AOL email
    We recommend not subscribing to the newsletter using an AOL email address. AOL's ability to deliver newsletters is faulty, and AOL refuses to fix the problem.
You can make changes to your newsletter preferences, including the email address that the newsletter is sent to, at any time. Changes will be made effective immediately.
