Does it seem technologically backward to anyone else that Constant Contact does not provide an option to deliver content securely?
I've just wasted 1/2 my afternoon on the phone trying to get a secure permalink to our emails so we can embed them in our website. We recently moved to a 100% secure site (full https for ever page on our domain), and our newsletters stopped working. Adding an 's' to 'http' didn't work, and after speaking with 2 individuals at Constant Contact support, who each spoke to "their technical support", I was told it can't be done. What?? I can't imagine we're the only one's wanting this. And I can't imagine how this hasn't come up before.
So, my suggestion, or "idea", is to enable delivery of content over a secure connection. Make those short URLs (http://conta.cc/rAnD0m) work with https.
