Hosting your own images - Post ID 265570
Since this change, I've noticed a pattern that I find distressing. When I look to export my email to HTML, the generator fails once then connects. EVERY TIME.
I'm frustrated because the notice of this suggests the server is "too busy" to execute the export but it then works immediately on the second attempt. This is suspicious because the pattern seems to be not because of server load at all but rather, just a nag to annoy users into updraging their service and CoffeeCup gets there residual revenue of $9/m. This isn't a lot of money but it makes more sense to use my own platform.
Has anyone else experienced this same scenario?
Should you change your mind and want to try Mailer again, you can upgrade at anytime here:
I would also make sure you are not using RED Mailer (look at the top of the app) but instead are using RED for Business.
I could be wrong. It may have been a glitch behaviour. However when trying to publish an email yesterday I had to go back and do several exports. Every second export attempt was successful after a failed attempt with a message that the service was too busy to compile the email code. After about a dozen times I was frustrated because the notice was consistently stopping me from exporting every other time.
It should be noted that all my images were hosted elsewhere and linked online as directed.
[UPDATE]: I have tried a few exports to see if I could screen cap the notification I was receiving and it hasn't come up. I'm hoping this was an isolated occurrence yesterday. Responsive Emailer for Business is a great product and has cut my build times by 60%. I understand the charge for hosting images.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
