As of this morning, 6 April, I’m switching email services. From my tests, I have high hopes that users with an Apple domain (@icloud, @me, will (finally) receive the forecast emails in a timely fashion. I have tried to make this switchover ‘seemless’ – but it’s IT, so I’m sure there’s one or two bugs somewhere. If you thought you had subscribed and are not getting the emails, please subscribe again. And likewise for unsubscribes. Or let me know and I’ll fix the database.
