Customising the unsubscribe link

Is it possible for you to add something like " http://www.siteastic.com/unsubscribe?email=email@here.com "? I can't really find a way of testing it?

Any takers?

Hi jamesgorrie,
I'm not sure excactly what you're asking, so I'll give you a somewhat general answer.

There's a few ways you can use a link with an email parameter for unsubscription.

One is already built into Campaign Monitor:
http://test.cmail1.com/u/123456/?email=email@here.com

test = your client subdomain
123456 = API List ID
email@here.com = the address, obviously

If you want to use your own domain, like your example, I'll give you a couple possible solutions:

Either: Set up a server side script at http://www.siteastic.com/unsubscribe that reads the email parameter, and forwards the subscriber to the url described in the first example (which, in turn, forwards the subscriber to a confirmation page).

Or: Set up a server side script at http://www.siteastic.com/unsubscribe that uses the API.
