[SOLVED] How to delete users who are not in any subscriber list


#1

Hello,

I wanted to know how is it possible to delete/remove email IDs that are NOT part of any subscriber list. Most of the times the number of subscribers shown is not the numbers that match with the total of all lists.

@glamsham It is a bit fiddly but can be done this way

  • create a new list
  • under menu Subscribers > Reconcile there is a command to move subscribers who do not belong to any list to a specific list. Use that command with your newly created list.
  • Then export the subscribers from that new list
  • Then copy/paste those exported email addresses into the Bulk remove subscribers page, menu Subscribers > Manage subscribers

You can also use the Subscribers plugin https://resources.phplist.com/plugin/subscribers which provides a report of subscribers who do not belong to any list. Export the results then use the Bulk remove page, or the plugin’s own Subscriber Commands page.
