How to edit your opt-in confirmation email

The opt-in confirmation email is an email sent to contacts who submit your subscription form.

Take note

The opt-in confirmation message can only be sent to contacts if:

  1. You have the double opt-in enabled on your ActiveCampaign form
    Single opt-in forms do not use opt-in confirmation emails. Learn more about the differences between a single and double opt-in.
  2. The contact does not have an "Active" status for your list
    If a contact is active for your list and submits your form, they will see your confirmation action instead of receiving your opt-in email. Read more about confirmation actions. Learn more about contact statuses.
