Subscribe/Unsubscribe by Email or Web Form
SendBlaster can automatically manage subscriptions (and unsubscriptions), build permission based email marketing campaigns (even if you don't have a website). Each list can be associated with an e-mail address: when an email message with “Subscribe” in the subject line is sent to this e-mail address the sender is added to the list. If the subject is “Unsubscribe” instead, the sender gets deleted (if he/she had previously subscribed). SendBlaster newsletter software downloads new email messages from the POP3 account, verifies the subject and updates the related distribution list.
Unsubscriptions and bounces to a specific address can now optionally apply to all lists for increased safety and reducing recipients complaints.
