No more DeskProto Newsletters - unless you subscribe

One last time we have sent a mailing to all addresses in our database (via a different route), explaining that the DeskProto Newsletters would cease to arrive unless the addressee responded with a "Please subscribe me" email.
In 2016 we found that we could no longer send Newsletter mailings as we had been reported as spammer. Sending to all downloaders had resulted in too many spam complaints. In addition some downloaders had entered email addresses they did not own, which remained undetected as these addresses were not validated.
So we had to start all over again, using a strict "Opt-in" system that only accepts validated email addresses.
