We are looking for a simple way of having newsletter signups being confirmed by clicking on a link in the acknowledgement email

Has anyone implemented this feature successfully please?

Some direction would be fantastic

thanks

Hi!

I got kind of a solution for the email-confirmation...
I just built a form-page, all inserts will be safed in a simple table in the dabase. The subscriber gets a email with a random generated Code. With this code he can go to a second page and put in a second formula. Is his code right, I just make the same actions like the »normal« newsletter-module-subscription form.
For Unsubscribe the function of the newslettermodule can be taken.

I hope this can help you.

Hi!

Okay, first thing, i did was creaing a table "MySubscription" containing standard fields like ID, ClassName, Created and with the extra fields firstname, surname, mail and valcode.
Second, I created a new PageTyp containing a formular where the user can give his Newslettersubscription inserts. After sending the form I created a random ValCode and send it to the user via email. I safed this information in the db.
Third, I created a second PageTyp where the user could give his valcode (he could also click on the link in the mail and get to this page). After submitting this form I called the "usual" Newsletter Subscription function and added him to our mailing list. I used this just for one Newsletter Types - I could not get it working with different newsletter types.

This is, what if done. But, my client did not want the feature any more - perhaps I have to get it work again in a few months.
I hope this answer helps you! If you are interested in the code I wrote just give me a pm / mail...
