How do I get a list of all of my current subscribers?
You can access our web interface and choose to receive several kind of reports. Please see the explanation in the steps below. Alternatively, you can also send commands to our system via email. Both of the methods are explained below.
You can get a list of all of the subscribers that are subscribed to your list and get the results displayed in an email or you can receive a text file with the list of your subscribers' email addresses.
To view them in an email, use the command: SHOWLIST
To view them in a text file emailed to you, use the command: ATTACHLIST
To use the web interface, log into your mail-list account at https://database.mail-list.com and then click on "Update Subscribers and Send Reports".
Click on "Send Reports Via Email" and click on the appropriate option:
"List of Subscribers" will send you the list in the body of an email while "Attachment of Subscribers" will send it as a text file attachment with an email.
