Bridgewebs Email Service - Re-Subscribe

Each club has a Member database that is used for a variety of purposes. One of which is to send Bulk Emails to Members.

You can check the status of your email, by entering your email below and clicking [Check].

Blocked Statuses

For your information the statuses that are considered "Blocked" are as below.


According to "Bulk Email" good practices, all Bulk Email is sent with an "Unsubscribe" link. If you receive an email from Bridgewebs and then click the "Unsubscribe" link, you have an option to confirm that you do not want to receive any more emails from ANY Bridgewebs club. It would be better to inform the club of this.,

Abuse (Junk/Spam)

If you receive an email from Bridgewebs and mark it as "Junk" or "Spam", this status is sent back to the Bridgewebs email service and the status of your email changed. If you do receive a particular email from Bridgewebs and you are not interested, just DELETE it.


Usually Bounced means that the email is invalid. However, Over a million emails get sent from Bridgewebs each year and many look the same, so, sometimes Email services automatically decide they are Spam (too many of the same type or some kind of wording) and reject the email. This can be Temporary or Permanent.


Email Servers send a status back to the Bridgewebs email service whenever an email is "Read", "Opened" or "Clicked", otherwise the email remains with a status if "Delivered". If you do not read any emails from Bridgewebs, then your email status will be marked as "Stale" once you have not read a number of times (currently 40).


You have used the [Re-Subscribe] button to enter the information, but not clicked the Activate link in the subsequent sent email. (Alternatively, someone else, e.g.. web Administrator, has done this, not realizing it requires an activation). 

If your email is flagged with one of the "Status" above, then, regardless of any club settings. no further emails will be sent to your email from ANY Bridgewebs club, regardless of any club settings.


You have clicked on the "Unsubscribe" link and chosen to to receive "Transactional" emails only. Responses to Forms are considered "Transactional", all other emails such as club "Newsletters" are considered "Bulk" and will not be sent to your email.


Emails may arrive marked as Spam or are automatically moved to a Spam folder or may not arrive at all

The Bridgewebs Email service does not know about this, but is dependent on the Email service used by the recipient.

It may be because the content of a Bulk Email does look like Spam or the Email service thinks so.

To improve the delivery of emails, make sure that you add the bridgewebs email to your contacts as a good contact, this depends on the Email service
