I’m scratching my eyeballs out over mailchimp’s final welcome email. I have spent months building my website and blog, and some weeks customizing my unbounce landing pages. I am currently on the 30-day trial for the starter plan (i.e. $49/month) and I am hoping to continue when the trial ends. However, just like the others above have pointed out; I’m frustrated with mailchimp’s final welcome email, which is automatically sent out regardless of whether or not I chose to do so. The worst part (which makes me want to punch somebody) is that the welcome email cannot be customized!!! I have tried everything I can, but still to no avail. I saw this video -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J511q… in which the lady was able to customize the welcome email. I tried to do the same, but it was not possible.
I just want a simple Thank You email with some directions to leads on what to do next until I reply back to them. Instead mailchimp sends out a welcome email as seen below:
"Your subscription to our list has been confirmed.

As I already mentioned; I tried to edit welcome email, but could not. The only editable part is the subject “Your subscription to our list has been confirmed”. I want to edit the whole email and write my own Thank You email. I am hoping that someone at unbounce and/or mailchimp can help me with this. So, far I have been impressed with unbounce and mailchimp, but this little flaw/frustration might be the killer for me. I don’t know why unbounce/mailchimp has not resolved this issue by now. Even if you (i.e. unbounce) are working on other projects, you should take sometime off to address the frustrations of your current clients/subscribers. Non of the guys above seem satisfied by the responses you have given so far, and I am not either. I am hoping that there is a simple quick fix to the problem in which case I would be sorry for being a little bit harsh on you.
