Troubleshooting Sun newsletters
Newsletters stopped? Unless you've unsubscribed, the newsletters should continue sending. But if you suddenly notice that The Sunriser or Headlines or other favorite newsletter stopped coming, here are some explanations:
- You accidentally unsubscribed or marked it SPAM. At the bottom of every newsletter is a link to "permanently unsubscribe." Find an older newsletter and click that link. You'll see a list of options, including, "I unsubscribed by accident! Please add me back to this list." Pick that one. If you don't see that option, email email@example.com.
- It's us. We do have technical issues on our end and we do our best to make them unnoticeable. But if you're missing newsletters, please tell us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, we'll never know about it.
