New e-mail options

I pretty excited about this one. Andy and I have been working on it for a while. Well, he's been working on it and I've been breaking it...From today's BookNews

BookNews from Eisenbrauns

Some of you wish you could get less e-mail from Eisenbrauns; a surprising number of you wish that you could get more. We're working on making it easy for you to control what, and how much, e-mail you get from us.

Our first announcement is that you can now subscribe to our Deal-of-the-Day offerings by e-mail:

We encourage you to subscribe to the HTML version (It's pretty!). Also, be sure to add to your "Safe Senders" list.

While you're there, you'll notice that there are four other lists available:

* Ancient News: Announcements, contests, conference information, and other general news. Messages go out about once a month, and fluctuate with the seasons. All lists will receive these messages.

* New and Noteworthy: New books as they become available. About one e-mail per week.

* Sales and Specials: Announcements of sales and special offers. About one e-mail every 10 days.

* Used Books: Get them while they're hot: used books as they're added to our database. Length and frequency will depend on what the market brings us, but we'll send out no more than one e-mail every weekday.

Your current BookNews subscription is equivalent to three lists: Ancient News, New and Noteworthy, and Sales and Specials. Subscribe to as many, or as few, as you wish. As with the current BookNews, you are in control. Feel free to subscribe even if the list is "under development."

Don't unsubscribe from BookNews yet; the "under development" lists aren't carrying any messages yet and we need to work out all the bugs first. If you'd like to be a Beta tester, let us know!
