The Daily Motivator
Subscriber Support FAQ
I received an email asking me to switch to a new email system. The email is asking me to click a link. I'm suspicious of emails containing links. Is this legitimate?
Yes. Since May 2015 we have been gradually transitioning subscribers to a new outgoing email system, in order to ensure more reliable delivery of The Daily Motivator to all subscribers. The new system is a "double opt in" system, requiring you to click on the link in the initial email you received. The system then sends you another email with another link to click. The purpose of all this is to confirm your address with the new system. Sorry for the confusion. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Why am I seeing advertisements on the site? I pay for a subscription, so I should not have to look at annoying ads.
We agree completely! Just log in with your email address and password, and the ads will disappear. In their place will be a soothing photograph with positive affirmations. And what’s really nice is that you can add your own personal affirmations on this section of the page. Just go to the Affirmations Manager to enter your affirmations. Then, when you read The Daily Motivator messages on the website, several of your own affirmations will be displayed alongside them. You may find that the positive energy you get from that feature alone is worth the modest $15 per year subscription price.
I did not receive my Daily Motivator message today - what’s wrong?
First, check your Email preference to make sure your subscription is set to have the daily messages sent to you by email. If it’s not, you can change it with just a click. Also, go to the login page and log in to make sure your subscription hasn’t expired or been paused.
We work to make sure that The Daily Motivator is extremely reliable. In
more than fifteen years of publication, we have never missed a single
publication day. The e-mail messages are sent every Monday through
Saturday (we do take Sundays off, so you won’t receive messages on
One of the most common reasons that subscribers don’t receive the messages
is that they accidentally BLOCK the messages using their spam filtering
features of their e-mail program. Almost all Internet providers and e-mail
programs now feature some form of spam blocking. In almost every case when
a subscriber contacts us about not reliably receiving the daily messages,
the problem turns out to be caused by the spam filtering setup on their
e-mail. Fortunately, this is an easy problem to correct. Please understand,
though, that this problem can only be corrected on your end, by adjusting
your mail settings. Nothing we can do on this end will make the messages go
through if they’re being blocked by your Internet provider or your e-mail

I’m clicking on the picture and music link in my email but not seeing the pictures or hearing the music. Why not?
First, try accessing the presentation directly instead of from the email message. If you’re able to see and hear it that way, then the problem is that your email program is not communicating the link to your browser. This is usually due to security or firewall software on your computer that is designed to prevent you from being able to click on links in email messages. If that’s the case, you’ll need to adjust your security settings to get the link in the email to work.
Alternately, you can just bookmark this page in your web browser, and go to that bookmark every day. The current day’s picture and music presentation will always be available there.
If you’re not able to view the presentation by going directly to the web page, then the problem most likely is that your computer does not have the Adobe Flash Player installed, or that it has become corrupted and needs to be re-installed. To view The Daily Motivator presentations you need to have Adobe Flash Player version 9 or higher. You can quickly and easily download and install the latest version of Adobe Flash Player at no charge by going to Adobe’s download page.
NOTE: If you are viewing the presentation from a mobile device, such as an iPhone, Android phone or tablet, or iPad, you do NOT need to have Adobe Flash Player installed.

You should receive a confirmation of the change which will be sent to both the old and new e-mail addresses.

How do I change my password?

I forgot my password, or don’t remember ever having one in the first place.
Enter your email address on this page and we’ll send you a password. Then you can log in and change it to whatever you wish.
How do I give a gift subscription?

Will I be automatically billed for a renewal subscription?
