Due to technical difficulties, we are moving Daily Issa to a Yahoo group titled, appropriately, "DailyIssa."
You will still be able to receive your daily dose of haiku via e-mail. Here's what you need to do:
1. Go to the e-mail account that you want to use for receiving the haiku. Send a blank e-mail to:
2. You should receive an automatic message from Yahoo that asks you to click a link to become a member of the group. Click that link and you'll see a page that has the button, "Join the Group." Click it. Note: If you don't receive this message right away, check your Spam folder.
3. Set your preferences for how you want to receive your daily haiku.
4. At the bottom of that page, type the security code provided and click "Join."
Check your in-box in the next 24 hours. If a haiku from the Yahoo DailyIssa group is not there, look for it in your Spam folder (this is what I had to do when I tested the system). Mark the Issa haiku as not Spam. If there is no message, don't hesitate to contact me.
Once you are receiving the haiku from Yahoo, you can unsubscribe from the old system by going to http://cat.xula.edu/issa/ ...or just wait. We will be shutting it down in a few weeks.
The old system will be shut down as soon as I've had a chance to send this message to all current subscribers, so if you want to continue receiving Issa's daily one-breath poems, join the Yahoo group right away!
Note: This group is set up only as a convenient way to deliver the daily haiku. It's not a discussion group. Your in-box will not be flooded with comments by 3,000+ group members, since I have set it up so that only I can send messages, and I will only send one haiku a day.
