You can also subscribe members in the List Administration web interface
under Membership Management > Mass Subscription. This is much easier
for a non-techie.

Hi d D ! ( grin ) ...........Different person with the same problem
here....We tried that when we originally set up our new mailing list
thinking we could copy/paste subscriber emails to our old mailing list into
this field... all it did was send out invitations to subscribe..It didnt
actually subscribe them...They still have to reply to the verify email and
thats where we are having the problem...
I am having trouble with our members either not getting
the verification emails or probably
having them dumped into spam filter files... We are dealing with a lot of
elderly ( 70 +) porcelain artists who are artists and not computer geeks..
:-) .... and I have several who have resubscribed 4 or 5 times and are just
not getting the idea of " reply to the verify letter"...and there are also
some who manage to retrieve the letters or click on the webpage link in
the email only to be told that it is an invalid verification code... ( I
know these expire after 3 days... but these are ones that are giving the
errors on the same day they are dated... )
Also, if anybody has some recommendations of good MUAs ( boy , I hope
i used the right term here ) that will display Mailman properly with
styled text, Im all ears... I personally run Eudora and it displays
everything... but some of our listers are getting either scrubbed messages
or every message as an attachment. I would love to be able to take
advantage of colored text so if anyone has any suggestions I can pass
along, Im all ears...
Thanks , everybody
