Thanks for taking time to answer. I’m referring to this:
I’ve set up a couple (one for testing, one for production) and I’ve been subscribing some of my own email addresses in order to test out my cron jobs that deal with adding and removing subscribers using the Announce List API found here:
Here’s the workflow process:
email@example.com subscribes to my announcement list and receives a Subscription Verification email with a link he must click in order to start receiving the newsletters. Deep in the hidden recesses of the announcement list code,
firstname.lastname@example.org is now in my list, but
completed==0 so he doesn’t show up in my list of subscribers until he clicks the link. When he does, completed=1 and I can begin emailing him.
If he ignores (or doesn’t receive) that subscription verification email, his completed value stays 0 for some unknown (to me) length of time before I presume the link in the email is expired. I’d like to know what that length of time is.
I notice if I try to add
email@example.com again, I get the error
so it seems like the length of time the system waits for
firstname.lastname@example.org to click the link is 2 days, but it’s not. I can wait 3 days, click the link, and get added. Could I wait a week? A month? FOREVER?!?!
Thanks for your help!
