Hi David,

I used to use Immediate Notices, but after trying Daily Notices for a
while, I decided they work much better.

I know Earthlink has very tight spam and security controls. Since
you know the Immediate Notices are going to be caught by them, your
solution is within your control.

Have you even tried using Daily Notices? I started by using them on
my busiest list, then I added the list that attracted the most
spam. Why not use Daily Notices on your busy lists and stay with
Immediate Notices on the slow lists. Or whatever division works for
you. But, David, please at least give it a try.
