Passing an e-mail address in a link


I'm just wondering if it's possible to easily pass an e-mail address via a url in a Campaign Monitor newsletter.

I would like to have our unsubscribe link point directly to our web interface for managing subscription options. Therefore we'll need some way to send the user's e-mail address to our site via the click of a link.

Is there an easy tag or piece of code to do this?

Hi emmett!

The subscriber's email address can be added anywhere in the email using the tag [email].

However, to add the email address to the url of the confirmation page, you need to edit the settings of your list.

Here's a guide

Remember that even though the page the subscriber is being forwarded to is the subscription management of your site, you should also confirm clearly that she has been unsubscribed from the newsletter.
