I request that you do not send pdf files that I have to copy and reformat.  I prefer you provide your very brief job description in an email rather than an enclosure.  I may limit the size of your position descriptions (generally to 500 words or less) as I have a size limit on the newsletter (HTML and text content cannot exceed 123 KB), which equates to about 7,000 words total.

Aha moment, I think. I don’t think I was scrolling down far enough to find the section with the links. I came upon the list without links, clicked on the link to the website, got the list without links again and thought there was something wrong.  I tried this in three different browsers and checked email settings as well. If the section with links appears below the section without links, it would be helpful to tell people to scroll down rather than provide a link to the browser, which is what got me going in a circle. Thanks for taking so much time to help me and in general for doing what you do!
