How do I replace my existing list of subscribers with a new one?

To replace your entire list with a new list, you can either use our web interface or send a command via email. The confirmation process is bypassed, and subscribers do not receive a Welcome Message.

Using the Command

To completely replace your existing list, use the command:   REPLACELIST

Note:
This command is useful for paid subscription lists or membership organizations where you have a database of paid subscribers.

REPLACELIST erases your existing list and replaces it with the new email addresses.

To learn how to send a command to our system, please refer to this lesson:
