Video failed to embed in email, email failed to send, system failed to notify me

As the subject line implies, the last newsletter I sent was a string of disasters.

First, I embedded a video in the email, only to discover after I'd sent the email out that the video vanished from the email.

Then I sent a correction email with a link to the video, and the system failed to deliver the email.

Then, I learned the hard way that unlike most of the content delivery systems I've worked with, AllPro does NOT send me any kind of notification when it fails to send scheduled content.

If you could fix the issue where embedded videos vanish from emails, look into why the system failed to deliver my email "Enough material for group program video failed to send", and add a feature to ensure that AllPro notifies its users when scheduled emails fail to send, that would be great.

Thanks!

Thanks, Dave. Since inserting the video was an option, I assumed it was a viable one, so now I'll know for next time. I'll check out the video you sent me.
