Although many readers visit the Mathaba News Agency web site or follow via Twitter
or other means
, we highly recommend everyone
to receive the Mathaba Daily Briefing via Email
This will ensure that you get a(n almost) daily Email no more than once a day at the same time each day (just after 11:00 UTC) containing a list of the main news, analysis and commentary highlights and alerts selected by our Editor-in-Chief. It is easy to miss important alerts when following by other means such as social media.
Signing up is easy and free, just go to www.mathaba.net/go/daily
and enter your Email address in the box, click the button, then enter the code that appears in the pop up window. After this, immediately check your email inbox as you will be sent an email immediately which you need to either reply to, or click the activation link contained within in. Note that this Email usually ends up in Yahoo or Hotmail junk folders.
Only after clicking the confirmation link (so that we can be sure someone else did not sign you up with your email) can we start to send you the Briefing. Sadly, around half of those who sign up do not complete this process, mostly because the first confirmation email arrives in the Spam or Junk folder due to Yahoo and Hotmail competing with Google, which provides the daily mail out service.
In future if resources permit, we could send the Briefing from our own mailing service
, but for now we use the service provided by Feedburner-Google, as it saves a couple of hours work each day that would require additional staff and financial resources to pay them, or management of further volunteers. So please take care to check your Spam (junk) folder immediately after signing up, especially if you use Yahoo or Hotmail, and open the Confirmations Email so that you can click the link in it to activate your free subscription.
