As it exists now, the Email Archive function is quite tedious to use/update, though the final product is fine. It would be great to make adding items to the archive more streamlined. Here's the current method: First I have to switch to an approved browser (IE or Firefox) and log in again. Then head over to the Archive section under Email. Here's where the trouble starts. I click on Archive More Emails and manually click through the ones to add. Not so hard, right? Except that's only the beginning. Then I back out of there and go to Edit Archive Homepage where I basically repeat the exact same process. I edit the block with the archive list, manually click through the ones to add, then save and "finish." But it's still NOT done! Finally, I click the Update Homepage button. This takes 3-5 minutes of clicking around, and it's just annoying--especially when adding multiple emails. New Idea: Have the archive email list look like a blog post history. A simple list that links to the emails permalink. They should already have a permalink because of the "view webpage version" option in email creation. Almost every major blog has a post history, and that's all my folks really need. That's sort of what the end product looks like now, but with "Archive" turned on (it's a paid add on) I'd rather have all emails add by default and choose to manually remove some than go through some duplicated check box process like now. I'm not sure what they're trying to avoid with the current setup. It looks like they want you to be really sure about posting to the archive. But these are already published emails, so what's the fuss? The more effort I have to invest to update an archive, the more likely it will be out of date and ignored. Having an automatic archive/history would be GREAT!!!

I have a .docx file that failed to upload, so I converted it to a .pdf. I have been repeatedly trying to upload it for about 15 minutes. I even exited the email and came back in to try again, and it still will not upload. The file is 143kb.
