Address book subscription notifications

Learn how to sign up for address book subscription notifications and keep track of your address book's growth.


For easy tracking and awareness of an address book's growth, you can sign up to receive two types of notifications: 

  • Join notification: this will provide an alert whenever a new subscriber joins the address book.
  • Daily summary: this will provide a daily digest of new subscribers which arrives the next day, summarising the subscribe activity of the address book for the previous day.

Adding and removing email addresses for notification signup

To add (and remove) email addresses for notifications of signups: 

  1. Go to Email > Contacts > All contacts, and select the Properties icon of the relevant address book

  2. On Edit address book, select the available link underneath the 'Join notification' and 'Daily summary' fields to add the email address of the account that you're logged in with, which will sign you up to either or both. Alternatively, you can type in a different email address for yourself.

    If you wish to add further email addresses so other people can receive the notifications, just type them in. Ensure each new address is separated by a comma.

    To remove signups, simply delete them from the field and select Save to confirm the removal. 

  3. Select SAVE to confirm.

 The join notification email

The join notification email provides you details about the latest contacts added to your address book. It shows the Total Subscribers, New Subscribers, and the time and dates your latest subscribers signed up.
