SCCA Email Service Mandatory Reset

The SCCA is updating its email and digital newsletter subscription service. In the coming days, members will receive an email from the Membership Communications Manager with instructions for the mandatory reset process.


With this update, members will gain tools to get all the information they need on Club and motorsport activities. Members will be able to control subscriptions and change preferences as their Club interests evolve so the most important and useful information arrives easily in email inboxes.


SCCA members now have a two-week window to create their own Opt-In Settings.  An individualized link will be delivered via email to members.  Simply click on the link contained within the Membership Communications Manager email to arrive at the webpage where setup and topic selection can be personalized.  Once the selection process is complete, simply click “Save” and preferences will be stored.  To make changes in the future, simply revisit the same Opt-In page.


Don’t miss a single piece of important news from the SCCA.  Reset your email preferences today!!

    No clicking on links in email ... who know where they really go?  

    There should be a secure portal for members to register/update their info ... if every other thing we use in this world (banks, credit card companies, workplaces, internet sales sites) can manage it, SCCA should be able to as well.  And if you can't ... you need to fix that right damn now.

    Just saying.

    You can never be too careful.

    But it gives the appearance of progress on behalf of the SCCA.

    I agree with Rebecca Harvey, yYou're wise to be careful.  It certainly doesn't seem to be an optimal process for getting members to update their profile, but I'm sure it's well intended trying to make each click thru URL personalized and minimize the customary resistance required when asking members to log into their account.  As I like to say "mere mortals can't remember their logon credentials for accounts they use regularly, much less those they visit infrequently."

    The email you received, if it’s like the one I got from John Burchardt, is automatically suspect because I don’t really know John and don’t customarily receive messages from him.  The email message should have been sent from a Sports Car Club of America named account like, email addresses we might have recognized from previous communications.  Alternatively, John’s email reply to name might have displayed SCCA Membership Communications Manager - John Burchardt, instead of just his name. 

    Fortunately clicking thru the email provided thru link doesn't request any security credentials, like a normal phishing application might.  Many prudently wise and careful people won’t even try it!  I have good security software running on my PC and was confident enough to give it a try.  The landing page that responds already knows my (or your) email address, so updating the form and hitting submit is easy and doesn't incur much risk.  The problem of course is none of us minions know if Magnet Mail (domain name shown in the URL) is the legitimate SCCA email service provider or not.  I would have much preferred the landing page to be hosted within the domain.  Alternatively in John’s email message when he explained the club has updated its email subscription service, he could have mention Magnet Mail.  I suspect many recipients will ignore John’s email message all together.
