I have been attempting to get something similar to this working with no success. Consider the following case
(I have followed the opt-in instructions and they work fine - up to a point)
- visitor to site submits email address
- opt-in email sent
if user were to click the link - the opt-in works and everything is fine - however - they don't do that
- visitor never clicks opt-in-link in email from #2 so stays in unconfirmed segment (so far so good)
- 10 minutes (or a month, or a year) later visitor revisits site and resubmits email address - this time they go looking for the opt-in email to complete the optin process
- they are not yet opted in - but the system will not send them another opt in email - in fact there does not appear to be any possible (automated) way to get them a new opt-in email so they have to forever leave = lost prospect.
I have tested the 10 min case - obviously the longer case is more difficult to test. if mautic has a duplicate email cleaning function what is its window? and can it be turned off?
I can code a solution to the problem in php - but before I do - I thought I should make sure I am not missing something obvious. Please tell me I have missed something?
