    ... and we need to let beginners have a place where they can ask questions without fear of ridicule, laughs, and jokes.

    If your question is "please teach me how to inbox Yahoo" you will likely create member wrath and will get flamed - be warned!

    Asking for help vs. "tell me your secrets" are two different things. Proceed with caution please but in general, if you're not asking for freebies non stop, your question most likely has a place in this forum.

    The Noobs are staring at their screens wondering how to phrase their questions so they don't get slammed! lol

    Noobs --- forget the flamers ... they have nothing better to do. Just ask your questions ... someone with sense will answer it, hopefully. ;)

    I think they are terrified to post here, I got several PM's from 2 noobs asking for advice ---- I didnt bother to respond was too tired but i'll do now.

    Noob 1: To answer your question, YES, you will want to purchase that CD-ROM for $99 containing 50billion email addresses, how else do you think people get names, and good names at that?

    Noob 2: I cant help you there with your wife not giving you any, perhaps your inbox delivery is poor. Try to give her something to Yahoo about.

    a good rule of thumb for noobs is to "read first, ask second"...as it looks like this forum is shaping up nicely with a good core group of solid mailers there will most likely be weekly gems thrown out here. Paruse, absorb and then when you come up with a question that hasn't been covered well enough for you to grasp it...ask it. BUT, at least do us the favor of fully explaining what it is you don't get i.e. "after reading this thread I was wondering if..."

    Might be a good section to start "gem of the week" or "secret sauce tip of the week"...Roundy, I know you're loaded with 'em!

    the first thing a successful emailer needs to learn is that 'delivery' is up to you. No system will create it for you. It might just make it easier to accomplish but you need to know how to do it.

    this means strategy and tactics. The forum area on here for ESP's is very helpful.

    There is no magic bullet. If there were then all of us would be sailing in our Yachts drinking champagne right now instead of talking to each other to find new ways to deliver mail and earn our livings.

    There are companies that have delivery figured out (whitelisted ESP's) but as soon as you send mail on them they will shut off your account. Meaning the kind of email that makes money isnt very good for IP reputation.

    So noobs take a look around and read up and digest and be prepared to spend a lot of time and money to figure out what method works best for you. I have had incredible months and terrible months and the rules are always changing so I am always looking for new ways to get my mail inboxed.

    Hope this helps.

    If anyone needs any help i will try to help as best i can as others on here have helped me and Id like to pay it foward.

    Thank you for the honestly. I wish my friend would try and keep it in mind. He is always looking for every seedy, barely legal, ulgy and boring, "no it's not spam" idea that comes along. I will continue to read until a decent question comes to mind, Later.
