  • Bulk Email

    Had a word with FTDNA this morning (10/29/2007) and requested that they change the bulk email facility so that all members are addressed as BCC (blind copy).

    I sent a bulk email to my group and got raked over the coals by a few members who objected to their email address being in the TO rather than the BCC. Can't say I blame them.

    Bulk email has always bcc'd the members, so this must have been a recent change. The bulk email had broken a couple weeks ago and it was just fixed -- maybe they accidentally broke the bcc when fixing whatever broke before.

    Did FTDNA say they'd fix this?

      I was told they would fix it today. I think I'll wait a couple days then contact them and verify it's been fixed as there is no way to tell without sending a bulk email.

        I don’t know about you… but… I do not want FTDNA releasing my E-Mail address.
        This is why they send their great newsletter using “BCC”, All E-Mail should be sent that way.
        I can’t wait to get their latest newsletter on the convention as I have heard very little and heard that it is going to be a ‘bomb shell”. This is the reason I only use FTDNA. We need one source for our testing results and they do a good job with their YSEARCH. If it’s not on YSEARCH, I do not compare to it. I have heard horror storied about the data on the “other” sites, they are a mess due to the conversions that are needed. Why can’t they show it with one standard format? This just confuses the masses and messes up the results.
