INTERNET HEADQUARTERS—Speaking on behalf of the overburdened World Wide Web, Internet representatives announced Monday that all Sunday e-mail service would be discontinued as part of a new cost-cutting measure. “Any correspondence sent after 11:59 p.m. on Saturday will now be delivered by noon on Monday,” Internet spokeswoman Sharon Jervis said. “Users should expect further delays during national holidays or on days affected by adverse weather conditions.” Jervis added that, starting Mar. 30, all e-mail attachments will also be charged by weight.

  1. What do you expect? Everyone is facing the same mandate to “do more with less.” This is going to wreak havoc with my – and my clients’ – e-newsletter delivery. Maybe I should go back to good old-fashioned snail mail, using a Conformer plastic mailer to boost open rates.

  2. I also understand that the address placement on large Emails must conform with the new regulations. Don’t forget that Bulk Email Blasts must be put through a Move Update process to insure address accuracy. Bad email addresses are a major portion of the increased costs of sending and receiving email.
