    Email Confirmation for Subscribers?


    I think the Newsletter Studio is a nice tool for Umbraco and I'm willing to buy it.

    But in Germany a confirmation by email for subscribing and unsubscribing newsletters is required by law.

    Is in the Newsletter Studio such an option?

    Hi Marko!

    Thank you for concidering Newsletter Studio!

    I did not know about that fact that this was requried by law. At the moment there is no such feature in Newsletter Studio.... BUT....

    As far as I can see it you only could create your own. There is a file called "NewsletterSubscribe.cshtml" that is shipped with the package, you could use that as a starting point.

    You could just have a textbox "Subscribe to newsletter", when the user post it you would send of an e-mail (using standard .NET-mail classes). In this mail the user will have to click a link and then you would send them to a page and have there email as a Querystring parameter. Then you can just add them with the Newsletter Studio API:

    NewsletterStudio.Api.Subscribe(txtEmail, subscriptionId)

    I will add the feature to the back log and it may be something that we implement in the future (but not before the summer).
