Newsletter extension questions


#1

Hey all,

I am about to add the newsletter extension to a project, but first I
wanted
to ask a few questions about it.

  1. Can it send an email confirmation back to the person that signed up?
  2. Is it set up to force them to confirm before you can email to them?
  3. Are there facilities for them to unsubscribe later on if they want
    to?

I think that’s all for now.

Thanks,

Nate

Yes

Nobody is forced to confirm :wink:
When someone signs up, they are immediately entered into the database
with
status ‘unconfirmed’ (or similar). They are sent an email with an
activation
link. Clicking on the link sets their status to ‘confirmed’. When you
send
an email to the list, it will only be delivered to people who have
confirmed.

Yes.

Perfect. Thanks Drew. Installing git from macports now to make use of
it.
