MailWizz EMA – Subscribe by email
When is this useful?
This extension is useful if you want to give your subscribers the ability to subscribe/unsubscribe to/from your email lists by simply sending an email to a specific email address with a specific subject.
— Your potential subscribers can send an email to, let’s say, [email protected] with the subject ”Subscribe to [LIST_UID]” in order to subscribe automatically to the list.
— Your existing subscribers can send an email to, let’s say, [email protected] with the subject “Unsubscribe from [LIST_UID]” in order to unsubscribe from the list.
A more advanced way is to have your potential subscribers send an email at [LIST_UID]@domain.com with the subject “Subscribe” to subscribe to the list, or with the subject “Unsubscribe” to unsubscribe from a list.
You can also use both ways at the same time, the extension supports this just fine.
Please note that in all cases, [LIST_UID] is the list unique id for each list.
This extension will also add proper info in the customer area for each email list, it will give proper instructions on how people can subscribe/unsubscribe to the given list.
Please make sure you read the extension guide before proceeding any further. Since this extension is based on piping the incoming emails to a PHP script (email piping) it means for some will be harder to setup.
The guide explains step by step everything you need to do to get started though, so by following it you should be able to set things up just fine.
