Set Up Your Opt-In Emails

By August 22, 2011 No Comments

Subscription Confirmation Email is a major component of good list-building practices, and the second step for those subscribing to a confirmed (or double) opt-in list. This automatic email allows your recipients to confirm that they have allowed you to add them to your list.

You can edit this email by navigating to a specific contact list within your CakeMail account and going to List Summary on the left hand menu.

Find the Personalize option and hover over Confirmation Email


Click on Edit Confirmation Email


Feel free to personalize this email any way you want! Remember, all recipients will receive this automatically upon subscribing to your list via a web form. Subscribers that you upload or import will not (though you still need to ensure that they have opted in to receive your emails).


Once subscribers have confirmed their email address, you can choose to send them an additional Welcome Email, which can be set up by following the same steps above but selecting “Welcome Email” from the list of emails you can edit.

Would you like more information about opt-in lists and why they’re important? Visit our support site or take a look at our email deliverability whitepaper for more information.
