Signup to newsletter via an e-mail address

MailChimp had no answers online

If people send e-mail to a designated e-mail address (such as the lists from address), they should be able to be automatically invited to join the list.

My interpretation of their response: I should make a Drupal module to do that.

Actual response:

Hello Ben!

It's nice to virtually meet you! That's a great question and we’re happy to get it answered for you!

Currently right now MailChimp is not set up with an "email to subscribe" option. However, there are multiple options to go about joining the list! The easiest way is to have people use the signup form which you can either add to your website or simply provide the link to the one that we host for you (How can I add my signup form on my website?:! This process is a double opt in process and when using our forms it cannot be turned off: How does Confirmed Optin or Double Optin work?:

It's also possible to code your own forms or use your own process and have the users added to MaiLChimp through the use of the API. This option let's you control how the signup process works: Does MailChimp offer an API?:

We also have an integration with Sundrop Mobile that incorporates a "text to subscribe" feature! This is a great alternative to email to subscribe and all of the information can be found here: How does the Sundrop - MailChimp integration work?:

All that being said, the idea to email to subscribe is a great idea. Your best bet would be to add this to our official wish list. Here's the URL: Official Big Giant Mailchimp Wishlist

Our developers and designers frequently check that forum when planning application upgrades.

Happy to answer your question! If you need additional assistance please either reply to this email or swing into a live chat with us tech support chimps. Live chat is available Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm EST at

Have a great day, eep eep!

Thank you,
