I send weekly prayer updates over email to friends and family that want to receive them. Recently I switched to sending them via an email service instead of just doing it through Gmail and BCC everyone. I liked a few features of the email client and, to be honest, like to try something new and techy when I can.
Well, sometimes the simpler things are better. Due to the new service, my emails had been getting lost or redirected in a few friend's inboxes. (Thanks mainly to the aforementioned Gmail.)
Sending it myself, while not quite as cool, still seems to be the best option to get my emails seen by those who want them.
