How do I get my subscriber to subscribe to my list/newsletter, then approve?
The following diagram represents an overview of the process:
Subscribing with the Confirmed Opt-In Process & Approving Subscribers
A new user can subscribe to your list/newsletter by sending a blank email to our system:
Alternatively, they can send their subscription request through your web page, if that option is available.
Please refer to this link for more information about setting up your web page.
Confirmed Opt-In steps
After a subscriber sends an email, the Confirmed Opt-In process will begin. They receive an email asking them to reply or to click a link to confirm their subscription:
When the subscriber hits Reply and sends us a return email OR clicks on the link, their email address will be added to your list. They will receive the Welcome Message.
You can control whether subscribers are added automatically or only after you have approved their request.
To require approval of all new subscriptions, make sure the Approve Each Subscriber option is turned on in your mail-list account. Please refer to these instructions on how to turn that option on/off.
Example of Acknowledgement Message when approval is required.
If the Approve Each Subscriber option is turned on, then the subscriber will be sent an Acknowledgement Message.
You will be sent a request to approve the subscription:
The body of the email will be blank. Reply to this message to add the subscriber's email address to your list.
If you do not reply to the Simon-Sez email, the subscriber will not be added and will not receive a Welcome Message.
Example of Welcome Message
The subscriber will receive your Welcome Message after their email address is added.
You can customize the Welcome Message by accessing your mail-list account to make changes.

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.
