The SNEWS® team will be changing the way we deliver our news to you. As of March 10, you’ll see a difference in the weekly email alerts from us – more customizable and just the way you want it. As of the March 10 weekly alert, you will receive an email reminder we are calling the SNEWS® Headline Email Service. Your emails will carry the subject line of SNEWS® News Update. In that email, every story headline, every press release, every bit of content that is new since the last email alert will be listed and will be a direct link to that story on SNEWS®.

But you can with this new system make all kinds of changes to how and when you want your alerts as well as what you want in them. Call it SNEWS® your way. You’ve asked for this feature because of increased convenience and succinctness -- especially important for those of you on-the-go.

Here’s what you can do as of this week:

>> Choose the delivery date

What this means is no more headline reminders only appearing on Monday evening. Instead, you will be able to choose to receive your SNEWS® News Update alert emails every day, every other day, only on Monday and Friday, only on Friday, just on Tuesday and Thursday, or on whatever days you want. It’s your choice. The default for everyone will be Monday, as it is now, sent at the end of the day. To choose the days you wish to receive your SNEWS® alert emails, simply go to Manage Account, listed at the top of every page in SNEWS®, or click here. Once on the Manage Account page, select Update Email Preferences and make your choices in delivery day.

>> One email, all content

We’ve also done away with a separate email for outdoor and fitness. Instead, your as long as you are an All Access subscriber, your SNEWS® News Update alert email will contain both outdoor and fitness news, press releases and premium content information by default. If you wish to receive only fitness information or only outdoor information, simply go to Manage Account and select Update Email Preferences to make your content choices. SNEWS® Freebie subscribers will receive only outdoor or fitness headlines based upon the subsription preference entered at the time of order.

>>Text only or HTML

You can also select to receive your email alerts in text only or full HTML. Naturally, we recommend full HTML to take advantage of the rich text, design and link options we offer. That’s also under Manage Account where you select Update Email Preferences.



>> No more digests for Free Retail subscribers


All-access subscribers will still have a SNEWS® Digest and access to a complete Digest archive full of past Digests that are available for printing and taking to the lunchroom, the bathroom or on the plane to read at your leisure. However, beginning on March 10, our SNEWS® Freebie subscribers (formerly known as the Free Retail Subscriber) with free, albeit limited, access will no longer have access to a SNEWS® Digest. They will still receive a SNEWS® Headline Alert emails and be able to link directly to each story from there. As always, the limited access means they will have seven days of access to a story once it is posted to our site, as well as limited access to some features.

Don’t forgot our SNEWS® FAQ to answer your questions

Heck, this may even answer ones you might not have thought of. Even if you’ve been using and accessing SNEWS® for some time, we’d recommend checking out our SNEWS® FAQ which will guide you through all the features available to you on SNEWS®, including posting press releases, direct links to sections in SNEWS® to bookmark, accessing RSS feed, etc. Click here to read.
