As far as I know, this is the only kanji mailing list on the Internet (since Jason Vertrees' KOTD died long ago). And I think I know why - it's a bit of a technical pain to put together such a list. Anyway, after many months of work I have put together a Kanji a Day email list I am proud of. I must warn you that this list is new and experimental. Basically, that means I don't know what kind of weird problems may appear or how reliable my mailing software will be. But, for the price (free) it should be worth it.
There are actually 7 lists available, one for each group of Kanji that corresponds with the grade level in which they are taught in Japanese schools and one which covers all 1945 Joyo Kanji. You can sign up for as many or as few as you wish. Each day a new Kanji will be selected at random and sent out in the wee hours (North America).
Because the software I use for sending the emails isn't fully integrated with the site, you must sign up separately from the regular site registration (sorry - may fix that someday). So, sign up using the form below...
- The emails are best viewed in HTML format; the text format emails are a simplified version intended for those who wish to use their mobile phones...
- Encoding schemes for Japanese are a bit of a hassle - for the record, these emails are sent in Shift-JIS (SJIS)
- The "free" email services (e.g. Hotmail, Yahoo!) are the most likely to have display problems. Especially, note that you must manually choose the Japanese encoding scheme when using Hotmail. Recently, Yahoo! and Gmail have looked pretty good though.
