I am signed up for many Stack Exchange newsletters according to my profile, but these emails stopped arriving in my mail since Thursday.

The last email that has arrived is dated Wednesday, February 24, 2016 and since then I no longer receive mail. I have check my spam box and added Stack Exchange to my contact list, but it didn't resolve the issue last Friday, because they also stopped arriving.

With newsletter I mean the weekly site specific newsletters.

Edit: I notice that the preview for the newsletter from at least StackOverflow is blank, is this the cause of the bug?

  • I get newsletters on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and I also did not get one this Thursday (the 25th). No blank previews though. – NobodyNada Feb 27 '16 at 15:43
  • Are you browsing the page using https? I am getting mixed content warnings on the network tab, so the preview doesn't seem to load. Should be fine if you browse using http. – Oded Feb 29 '16 at 11:19
  • Preview problem is indeed caused by the http vs https problem. Still didn't receive my newsletters for last thursday and friday (many sites) – Ferrybig Feb 29 '16 at 11:22
  • I can confirm that we don't seem to have sent out any newsletters since the 24th. Looking into what the underlying issue is. – Oded Feb 29 '16 at 11:44
  • Also - thanks for reporting! – Oded Feb 29 '16 at 12:37

So, a change introduced on the 24th meant that our scheduler didn't hit the "send newsletter" schedule.

I've fixed that and newsletters should start flowing from 18:00GMT today (that is, about 5 and a half hours from when this is posted).

  • Maybe worth adding an alert sent to someone in the team, e.g. if no newsletters are sent for X hours, in case such thing happens again? – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Feb 29 '16 at 14:32

    @ShadowWizard - most of us do have subscriptions, but not as many as the OP, so we would have noticed. But yes, point taken. – Oded Feb 29 '16 at 14:38
  • Verified, all 8 newsletters I have subscribed to have been received for Monday 29th (for the people wondering, yes I am subscribed to 37 newsletters) – Ferrybig Feb 29 '16 at 19:53
