JungleMail | Subscription Web Part and its email and behavior templates

You might want to send new recipients a welcome or confirmation email when they sign up for a newsletter. In JungleMail for SharePoint there is an easy way to do this.

To begin, open the JungleMail Site Collection Settings from the Site Settings menu.

Here you will find several options that you can manage by simply checking the boxes of the features you want enabled.

Select the one below if you want the new subscribers to confirm their subscription by clicking an activation link in a confirmation email. Requesting an e-mail confirmation, or in other words a double opt-in, is a two step version of the subscription process. In step one the new subscriber fills out your subscription form. In step two, they'll click a confirmation link in thefollow-up (subscription confirmation) email to be added to your JungleMail subscribers' list.

 And when you simply want to send out a welcome email, choose the option below.

Subscription automatic email templates

You can easily adapt and modify the Subscription email templates used for these features. Simply scroll down in the same settings menu and under the Look and Feel header, select the Customize e-mail templates option.

Here are three predefined email templates. And you can edit them here according to your needs or branding.

The Welcome e-mail template will be send to new subscribers, if "Send a welcome e-mail" option in JungleMail settings is enabled.

The Confirmation e-mail template will be send to new subscribers if "Request an e-mail confirmation" option in JungleMail settings is enabled.

The Update subscription e-mail template is a subscription modification confirmation letter which subscribers receive if Double opt-in is enabled and a subscriber tries to sign up for the same newsletter and presses "Click here to update your subscription information" in a Subscription Web Part (link from "Message: Subscriber already exists" Web Part behavior template).  

Web Part behaviors templates

You can easily adapt and modify the Web Part behaviors templates . Simply select the Customize Subscription Web Part behaviors templates option.

This will open up a window in which you can adjust what the several behavior templates linked to the subscription web part will look like. You can modify any of these texts according to your preferences and needs.

Now we will briefly cover in which cases each of these templates would be used.
