  1. To begin, create a Mailing List in PoliteMail
  2. Change the Subscription tab from No to Yes to enable Opt-in functions. Hit Save/Update when you’re finished.
  3. Go to Actions > View Opt-In Settings

Editing Your Opt-In Page

1. Click Modify to make changes.

2. There will be several fields to personalize your Opt-In page. When you are finished, click Save Opt-In Settings. This custom Opt-In page will be associated with your mailing list.

Adding the Opt-In page to an email

  1. In the Mailing Lists grid view, go to Actions > View Opt-In Page.
  2. This will bring you to your customized opt-in page you created. *You must copy this link and paste it into your email for the opt-in page to be included in the email. *
  3. Go to Outlook > New Message > PoliteMail > Send to List and choose your mailing list. 
  4. Write the content of your message, and then click Paste to paste the link to the opt-in page. This will create a long hyperlink. To edit it, select it, right click on it, and then choose Link. In the Text To Display field, enter a shorter name.
  5. Now your email should be ready to send. Your recipients will now have the option to opt-in.

Using Opt-In will allow your user to subscribe that specific list. If you’d like your recipients to have a choice on which list they subscribe to, consider using PoliteMail’s Subscription feature.
