So we currently have a little box on the side of our website where members can sign up to hear announcements. For a while we've been using a simple plugin made for Wordpress, NotifyMe.
Recently though we've topped over 900 members and its quite slow.
We would love to use the announcement list feature, but we don't want to have to send out 900 emails for all the members to verify again.
Thus, the question is, is there anyway to add a number of subscribers and side-step this mandatory "confirmation email" rule? I completely understand why it is in place but it kind of makes it difficult to transition from our old email list manager to the the official Dreamhost feature.
If this can't happen, does anyone else have a recommendation to important and email over 900+ members?
