Get the highlights of what is happening around the Symantec community delivered right to your inbox. Sign up for the Connect Newsletter where we’ll feature popular articles and other content. Plus, you’ll get an update on your Connect Rewards balance.

We’re conscious that the volume in your e-mail box can become a bit overwhelming. That’s why the newsletter will appear in your email box only once a month (unless in the future you tell us you want it more.) And you can make sure your newsletter contains information you’re interested in receiving. Connect is divided into different communities, and so are the newsletters. To customize your newsletter to meet your particular interests, you can visit your Symantec Connect user profile and click “Newsletters.” Then, click the newsletters you’re interested in getting. (Each community sends a newsletter approximately one time a month.)

Need even more reasons to sign up for a newsletter? All of those Connect users who are signed up for a newsletter on May 1, 2010 will be entered into a drawing for 500 Connect Rewards points.

We must wait the 1st May before subscribing ? Or we must do before the 2 may ? Sorry, we are not all native english speaking you know ;-)
And what's happen to those (like me) already subscribe, they should remove now their subscription, to reactivate on 1st May ?? ;)

There's a link at the top of the page now, reminding you to signup, but it's broken.

Hey, setral, welcome back Sign up to receive the Connect newsletter customized to your interests. Click here for details.

The link goes to: https://www-secure.symantec.com/blogs/enter-win-500-connect-rewards-points returns a 404

The actual link: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/enter-win-500-connect-rewards-points works fine

Issue is even more weird, the link appears to be wrong in every page I've checked, EXCEPT for the following  My Profile - Newsletters and My Profile - Notifications.

Unable to subscribe more than 1 subscription on https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/ente...

I think the problem has gone away, yet only LiveUpdate has happened since then.

The buttons in this article won't work. They're just a screenshot of what you will see if you go to your individual profile. If you click on your username, you will see a tab that says "newsletters." By clicking on that you'll get the options to sign up.

Let me know if you have any questions.
