Question: I am trying to send a Newsletter to a list I created, let call it "My_Clients". My server has the MySQL and I have set up the info on MLM and seems to be OK. If I want to add a link called Unsubscribe on bottom of my newsletter, how can I set it up so my client can click on the link and his email gets unsubscribed automatically and my list get updated automatically. I have been using something like this but unable to make it work:
Answer: MaxBulk Mailer indeed uses MLM for un-subscription handling. For that feature to work MLM has to be fully installed on your server as explained here. Then all you have to do is to use the [Unsubscribe] tag in your message. Based on what the MLM manual says:
"..., just add the [Unsubscribe] tag to your message and MaxBulk Mailer will create the proper link for you. The substitution text for that tag can be edited from the MaxBulk Mailer preferences, Tags panel, at the bottom. By default it is 'here' so if you add this to you message: "If you don't want to receive messages from us just click [Unsubscribe]." it will be converted to: "If you don't want to receive messages from us just click here.", "here" being a link to the MLM unsubscribe script. You can use the sentence you like with the substitution word or sentence you prefer. The link will always allow the recipient to unsubscribe from your list. The MLM unsubscribe behavior can be modified by editing the lm_prefs.php file, you can tell MLM to keep unsubscribe addresses in the list, ask for a confirmation or send (or not) a confirmation email."
You've used a direct link in your message, that's fine but the right format is:
