How do I get a list of my current subscribers?

You can request a report listing all subscribers to your list. The results can be displayed in an email or in a text file attached to an email. You can either use our web interface or send a command via email. Both options are described below.

REQUEST VIA WEB INTERFACE

To use the web interface, log into your mail-list account at https://database.mail-list.com.

To request a list of subscribers within the body of an email:

  • Click Get Reports
  • Click Send Reports Via Email
  • Click List of Subscribers
  • Choose an email address to send the report. 
  • Click Send Reports
To receive a report of all subscribers' email addresses displayed in the body of the email that you will receive from our system, click on "Send Reports Via Email" and select "List of Subscribers" option:

Within a few minutes, you will receive an email containing the results.

To request a list of subscribers attached to an email:

  • Click Get Reports
  • Click Send Reports Via Email
  • Click Attachment of Subscribers
  • Choose an email address to send the report. 
  • Click Send Reports
To receive a text file attachment containing the results instead of displaying them in the body of the email, select "Attachment of Subscribers" option instead:

Within a few minutes, you will receive an email containing the results.

REQUEST LIST VIA EMAIL COMMAND

Alternatively, you can send an email to our system with either of these commands: SHOWLIST, ATTACHLIST.

After sending an email with a command, you will receive two emails from our system in less than 15 minutes.
