Subscription Manager component

You can automate the work with the distribution lists and offer your subscribers the possibility to subscribe to and unsubscribe from distribution lists without your assistance. No special scripts and services are required on your web-site. This Outlook add-in gives to your users the full control over their subscription, and you won’t have to divert your attention to constant requests to add/remove the subscriber to/from the distribution list! Besides the subscription management, Subscription Manager can automatically inform the user about the status of his/her subscription and send a message with a request, using which the subscriber can administer his/her subscription.

The Subscription Manager component tracks the incoming messages and when one of the key phrases - ‘subscribe’, ‘unsubscribe’, and ‘help’ – is found in the subject line, Outlook add-in updates the distribution lists correspondingly.

The use of the Subscription Manager component allows to:

  • automate processing of requests to add/remove addresses to/from the distribution lists;
  • add or remove the distribution lists that are available for the subscribers with just a few mouse-clicks.

On this tab you can select, which lists are available to subscription:

  • all distribution lists in the folder;
  • only the lists marked with a flag;
  • the lists that have the word ‘subscribe’ in the “Notes” field.

    Also select a separate folder for the incoming request messages from your subscribers, so that the messages won’t bother you.

    On the “Templates” tab you can change the view of the automatically generated template messages for managing subscribers, and on the “Advanced” tab you can select additional subscription parameters, e.g. ignoring messages with incorrect commands or the mailing account, from which the distribution will be sent, and additional settings:

    In addition to Send Personally I own the Toolbox. As a small business owner I use these products daily. I have tried MANY Outlook Add Ins with either mediocre or disastrous results. Every MAPILab product I have tried or purchased has worked flawlessly and when I had a computer problem the staff at MAPILab were available and responsive and helped me fix the issue rapidly (not a product problem but a damaged registry issue). I recommend without hesitation MAPILab products (and support) to anyone who uses Outlook . You will be pleased. Thanks MAPILab, Krispin Sullivan, CN
