Double Opt-In not working?
Problem reported by Anthony York - January 21, 2016 at 5:31 AM
Hi, i've just setup a form on our website to allow people to subscribe to our mailing list.
I've setup the list as double opt-in so that we don't just get an automated system subscribing loads of email addresses.
Problem is that when i enter an email address, press the subscribe, it just adds the email address anyway even before its been confirmed by the double opt-in!
Is that normal?
I would have thought that until you confirmed via the double opt-in that it wouldn't appear in the subscribers list?
Or does it get placed in there but not active?
If the latter is the case then it needs to say that its not actually in the list, greyed out or something?
Any help appreciated.

We use the double opt-in feature a lot, for our customer's maiking lists. Here's an example of a link: Enter your e-mail address, and you'll receive a confirmation e-mail messages, with a link on which you must click, to be added to the list.

I just have the same situation with the version 15.7.6614, the email for optin is sent but before the user confirms the email is added to the subscribed list.
