How do I get my subscriber to subscribe to my list/newsletter?
The following diagram presents the overview of the process:
Your subscriber can subscribe to your list/newsletter by sending a blank email to our system:
Alternatively, they can also send their subscription request through your webpage i.e. if you have set up one. Please refer to this link for more information about setting up your webpage:
After they send the email, the Confirmed Opt-In process will begin. They will receive an email asking them to reply back or to click on a link to confirm subscription:
When they hit "Reply" and return the email back to us OR click on the link in the email, their email address will be added to your list and they will receive the Welcome Message.
You can also control whether you want them to be subscribed automatically or after you have approved their request manually.
To control the settings to approve subscriptions, you'll need to ensure that the "Approve Each Subscriber" option is turned on in your mail-list account. Please refer to the instructions on how to turn that option on/off:
If the "Approve Each Subscriber" option is on, then the subscriber will be sent an Acknowledgement Message, which may look like this:
You will also be sent an email to approve the subscription, which will look like this:
The subscriber will get your Welcome Message after their email address is subscribed. Here is an example:
If you would like to customize your Welcome Message, then please access your mail-list account and make changes to it.
Helpful Information: When you access the Welcome Message in your mail-list account, you will notice "subscraddr". Wherever you insert "subscraddr", it will be replaced with the subscriber's email address when a Welcome Message is sent to them.
