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 website. This Outlook add-in gives 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.
