Multiple copies of newsletters
Some Earthlink customers are reporting that they are receiving multiple copies of the same newsletter, as many as 30. As of April 2014, we are still receiving reports of this problem. Earlier reports go back to 2007.

This suggests that mac.com is blocking newsletters at the mail server and not delivering them, probably they are being mis-identified as spam. One subscriber said she talked to mac.com technical support, and she was advised to use icloud.com rather than mac.com. She did report receiving the next newsletter after changing her address to that. Try that, or just use a different email account for BPN.

(May 2013) To read your newsletter
at mail.yahoo.com, you'll need to use the "Preview Pane", which is available
by switching the new yahoo back to the Basic version:
