Listbot does check for bounced e-mails even when you don't send out an e-mail. i've been sitting around and without ever sending a report my listbot report will tell me i lost this e-mail addreess, i usally pop off an e-mail asking why they unsubscribed. i normally don't get a reply buti know if their mailserver is working or not..

In over 6 months of running my newsletter I have never had more than 3 or 4 people unsubscribe in a day. In the last 36 hours, I have had over 60 people unsubscribe. Now if I sent out a crappy edition, I could understand this, but the last weekly edition came out 5 or 6 days ago so this doesn't make sense.
Something seems fishy here. I've already sent my newsletter host (Listbot) an e-mail. Anyone have any clues about what's going on???
The hits just keep on coming. I've had 93 unsubscribes since yesterday. That's more than in the last two months combined http://www.webmaster-resources.com/forums/frown.gif
I've sent Listbot two e-mails but haven't heard anything back. I was set to send out another newsletter tonight but will hold off until I can figure out what's going on here.
I realize that they occasionally bounce people but would they do them all on one day like this. Very discouraging...
maybe it's time u set up ur own mailing script, complete control. http://www.webmaster-resources.com/forums/wink.gif

Yeah, I'm growing more disenchanted with Listbot by the minute. Their customer service is very slow (I've been waiting nearly 24 hours now for a response) and the last e-mail they sent me was absolutely no help.
Over 130 "unsubscribes" in the last two days. About the same number as the last three months combined. Very strange...
