You will receive one brief message every two weeks. Notification messages contain a short summary of the new column with a pointer to its URL. Currently subscribers.
The mailing list is password-protected and is only used for one-way announcements from Jakob Nielsen. No spam, no discussions.
After you enter your email address in the box on this page, the mailing list server will send you a message to confirm that you actually want to receive the newsletter. This is an extra opt-in step to reduce spam and unwanted email pranks.
The newsletters will be sent with email@example.com as the "from" address.
If you use a spam filter, please add this address to the whitelist to ensure that you will receive the newsletter.
At the bottom of each message from this mailing list is a special webpage address that is encoded with your subscriber information. Simply click this link to get a page that will remove you from the mailing list.
Since this special unsubscribe address is different for each member of the list, we cannot print it here. Instead, look at the bottom of the latest email message you received from the list. You can also go to this generic link to unsubscribe.
