Oempro offers an easy way to create and manage mailing lists. In this chapter we will take a look at creating your first mailing list.
Before we proceed to create our first mailing list we need to understand two key concepts.
We strongly recommend that whenever you are creating a mailing list - use double opt-in list, this will save you a big hassle with managing the unwanted subscribers.
This will bring up the list creation wizard
Now that we have configured the basic list options - we must create the opt-in confirmation emails. These confirmation emails will be activated and sent to the user who is subscribing to our double opt-in mailing list.
Oempro allows you to configure your opt-in confirmation emails using 4 different methods, please remember that in any of the method used to create the necessary confirmation emails must include opt-in confirm and opt-in reject links. These links will allow the subscriber to confirm or reject the subscription.
This option will allow you to compose your email using an HTML editor. You can also paste your own HTML code and create an opt-in confirmation email.
This option allows you to select a built in template for creating an opt-in confirmation email. Oempro offers a wide variety of templates which can be used to create stunning confirmation emails.
Copy from another list
If you have already created a nicely formatted confirmation email for another list within your account then you can easily copy the same using this option, this method can help you reduce the time in creating a new set of confirmation email(s).
You can use this to fetch a URL which will have a formatted content for the confirmation email. Please be sure that this content will have to have the opt-in confirmation and opt-in reject links within the content.
For this example we will be using the first option "From Scratch".
Once you select this option you will be provided a screen which can allow you to define the settings of your email such as Sender Name, Sender Email address, Reply to name and Reply to email address.
Now we need to go to the content part of the confirmation email by hitting the "Next" button.
Now we need to review our confirmation email by hitting the "Next" button.
Example HTML content for your confirmation email
This is to inform you that your email address %Subscriber:EmailAddress% has been added to our mailing list.
I order to confirm your subscription please click on the below link. %Link:Confirm%
In case if you think that someone else subscribed your email id or you subscribed to our mailing list by mistake - you can reject the subscription by clicking on the Subscription Reject Link below.
Thanks and best regards XYZ Corporation
When you are done with the content part of the confirmation you need to go to the next step where you can review your email. The last step will allow you to preview your confirmation by sending a preview email or on browsers. It will also allow you to get the detailed content and spam analysis.
This is the final step to finalize your confirmation email and save it.
After you are satisfied with the preview you can save it by click on the "Next" button.
