Double opt-in/manual confirmation possible for manuallly imported email addresses?


I have a client who wants to use phplist and has a ton of addresses collected manually on trade fairs. To be able to legally use these addresses the client still needs the double opt-in from the people who signed up for the newsletter at the trade fair (EU GDPR mandated)

Looking through the manual I couldn’t find a way to mass-send a verification request, double opt-in request to a group of manually imported email addresses (imported as unconfirmed).

Can this be done? Or will all addresses have to be entered individually through a signup form to send verification emails? That would be very inconvenient.

Thanks for any hint!


@ts.mz2 You can use the Invite plugin for this. Follow the documentation link on the Manage Plugins page.

Thanks a lot for your help! =)
