Alternate Fix for Newsletter Link Problem

I have had a dozen or so of the 13,000+ newsletter subscribers email me and say the link is not working in the email and want to know how to access the newsletter.

Well.. all email systems are not created equal and with all of the spam these days, steps have been taken to try and eliminate problems.

Many email systems, go too far with this (in my opinion) and do not parse the links rendering them un-clickable.

While this is a problem it is easily gotten around if you know what to do..

It is as simple as getting to www.smoking-meat.com and then clicking on the link on the home page of smoking-meat.com which always takes you directly to the latest newsletter.

Many folks type the web address into the search box instead of the address bar and do not end up in the right place.

The address bar should be at the very top of your browser window regardless of what browser you use.. it will have some text in it that starts with http:// and the web address of the page you are visiting.

When you are at Smoking-Meat.com it will say.. http://www.smoking-meat.com/page-you-are-on.html

I have included a picture that shows exactly what I am talking about.. if you have further problems do not hesitate to email me and let me know.
