    I have subscribed myself many times to different websites and love getting automatic updates. Now as a new website "owner", I wanted to offer the same thing to potential clients. I dl the plugin, but it does not seem to be working.
    It appears they have 2 choices 1) to subscribe to receive blog updates in your feed reader or 2) enter your email address to receive new blog posts by email.

    When I test both of these links this is what happens.
    1) when I click on the subscribe I get the message from google "we're sorry....but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now. See google help for information.

    2) when I enter an email for blog updates, I don't get any to the email that I entered. (I have tried posting a new post, updated it, but it still does not work)

    Please help, This is the last thing I need to figure out before website is fully functional. my website is http://www.stampwithlori.com
    Thank you.

    Feedburner has become increasingly unreliable.

    MailChimp offers for free what they call Blog to Email for lists up to 2,000 email addresses and up to 12,000 emails a month. (I have no connection with or financial benefit from mentioning MailChimp).

    You might want to look at their free service. It is more reliable and has more features than Feedburner. You can still offer subscribe to RSS also, using the default WordPress feed URL.
