Steps to replicate:

1) go to any newsletter signup (ie: www.mozilla.org/newsletter)
2) Sign up with an email address that does not exist in Exact Target and select text email format
3) Submit

Error found:
Welcome email is not sent, and subscriber is not added to "Master_Subscribers"

Expected behavior:
For subscriber to be added to "Master_Subscribers" and the right text welcome email is sent.

Looks like text email signups aren't working at all - and HTML signups are working sporadically.

Steps to replicate:

1) Go to: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/newsletter/
2) Sign up with a brand new email address that has never been in Exact Target
3) Look for welcome email/check Exact Target's Master_Subscribers

Error found:
Contact was not added

1) Winston's new address did work, but my variation of @gmail.com address did not.
2) Our subscription numbers did go up over the weekend, but the daily counts were less than half of what they normally are (5k instead of 13k)

Are we getting errors from our calls to ET?
What's up?

Bug 871764: Fix errors causing subscriptions to fail.
The issue seems to have been with our recent fix to avoid updating the date for a flag if the user was already subscribed. This was throwing errors if our request for data from exact target was failing. One possible reason for this failure is that the user wasn't yet in exact target because they were signing up for the first time.

I'm now in the process of getting the data from the failed calls from sentry (our error collection service) and resending them to basket.

My fix was pushed to prod and appears to have fixed this issue. Please reopen if you see evidence to the contrary.
