Hello, I use Mailchimp for a daily newsletter in Germany. A lot of my customer use a mail-account at t-online.de  Since 20.8.2015 I can't sent any newsletters to them. The do not go into spam, they don't bounce, they just disappear. No problems with any other mail-provider. And t-online is of no help („look at the side of the sender, ...") Any suggestions? Thanks.

What happens if you send a one off to them from mailchimp servers?

When you import contacts for opt-in to a MailChimp list are they counted against your total subscribers? We are testing with the Free version and the list is more than the 2,000 max but the final count may be well below that.

Hello. I'm having trouble with Pause & Edit right now in that clicking the Pause and Edit button does nothing. Clicking on the title of campaign doesn't do anything either. Both the button and the title links refer to javascript:; rather than to a new webpage.

Hi -

I oversee a Wordpress.com site and Mailchimp list for a neighborhood civic association. I would like to have one list made up of two groups: paying members and everyone else. I have the list created, as well as the submission form for the paying members. It captures lots of detail and redirects at the end to a PayPal site for payment. I want to set up a second submission form that captures only email addresses (for people that are interested, but don’t want to become paying members) and that redirects to the standard Mailchimp “Thank you for signing up” page. 

The paying members submission form is set up using a General form. I was going to set up the simplified form using a Super Slim Embedded form, but Wordpress.com does not allow the underlying code on its site. I am aware of the workaround where you take a screenshot of the slim form and then embed the image as a link that takes you to the form, but I don’t want it to take people to the complicated paid membership form that redirects to PayPal. I just want to capture an email address. Is there a way to have two separate  submission forms feed a single list?

I hope that makes sense. Thanks for your help!

Ed

You are correct. Only 1 form per list on WordPress.com. If you were on a selfhosted platform you would have more flexibility.

EVIL POPUP
Has anyone figured out how to increase the delay beyond 5 seconds.

This is starting to annoy visitors before they get into my content. I'm considering turning it off all together.

I also recommend Optin Monster (which is used by Social Media Examiner) and PopupAlly which has some of the most customizable popups I've ever seen.  Yea ... MailChimp's native pop-up sucks!

Hi there, I'm new to MailChimp...evaluating whether I want to use it at MPOW. I've been tinkering around with the RSS-driven campaign options. I need to use this feed - http://evanced.and.lib.in.us/events/lib/eventsxml.asp?ag=&et=Art%2FCraft%2C+Author%2C+Book+Club%2C+Book+Sale%2C+Computer+Class%2C+Gaming%2C+Movie%2C+Other%2C+Public+Meeting%2C+Storytime%2C+Technology&lib=0,%201&startdate=08/01/2015&enddate=08/31/2015&feedtitle=Anderson+Public+Library&dm=rss2&LangType=0 - , but since it's from an event calendar without a pubdate MailChimp seems to only bring in the first item as an example and not all of the items in the feed. I've tried using the "recent" merge tag, to no avail. Any suggestions for this n00b? Thanks!

Does anyone know how to minify and compress files using gzip that are on an external server? For instance, I've done everything possible I can within my server but my mail campaign service (MailChimp) uses files that are not minified or using gzip. Is there anyway I can make it so that those files are automatically taken care of through the embedded link in my html?

Or is there a mail campaign service our there that takes care of their SEO better than MailChimp?

My site is super slow just because of that and I think it's idiotic.

+G. Guerrero If you use WordPress or a similar CMS you can use a popup plugin like MailMunch or Optin Monster and you probably won't have these types of issues.

Could anyone help me make my Mailchimp Action URL work on my shopify site?

I've followed these instructions: https://docs.shopify.com/manual/configuration/store-customization/communicating-with-customers/accounts-and-newsletters/get-a-mailchimp-form-action-url

But nothing happens when I try to subscribe from the footer. I just get a message that says 'Thank you for subscribing'. The emails I use do not receive a 'confirmation' email either. Help?

(I've done this before on other websites and it worked there.)

My website is here: http://www.shenovafashion.com/

It sounds like your form isn't integrated with your MailChimp account. I don't know Shopify or I would help more. Good luck!

Hi guys!

Do you know how to include custom html and css code in Mailchimp?

Thanks!

Yes. You can drag a code box into your layout, and put your css inside a style tag.
I found that "td" is the containing selector when you want to modify widths of elements... td p, td img, etc. The layout is tabular to support dinosaur email clients like Outlook (which may not use your css - Microsoft only chose to support a "subset" of css in Outlook.)

You can, however, use Social Networks Auto Poster to post to G+ if the post originates on your site/blog and goes out to your list via an RSS campaign.
Doing this, your email content aggregates to the authority of your site. MailChimp is one more spoke in this scenario, with the website as the hub of content, and spokes including all the social media you want to publish to.

That's right. I regularly have to explain this to new clients, who see MalChimp as a "glorified MTA" instead of a service provider with service quality.

If you are a Mailchimp user, don't forget to install and use their app for smartphones. I found it to be extremely useful and time saving.

Share your feedback if you have been using one and how do you feel about it ?
Have you tried the MailChimp for Android app yet ? If your email list is managed by MailChimp service, download and use this app if you are a busy blogger.

Looking for help on merge tags, specifically the one to insert a subscriber's first name, as in "Dear First Name." In the past |FNAME| has worked, but not on this mailing. I've attempted using |FNAME| as well as |MMERGE1| and |MERGE1|. My attempts are based on what I've found in Knowledge Base. I have a free account so no ability to contact tech support. Hoping someone here can clear this up. #merging   #mergetags

+Amy Hall, you're right.

+Michael Keukert, same list and it has a field for first name. I'll give a look at things using the HTML view. Hadn't thought of the possibility of HTML code obfuscating the tag. 

Thanks to you both.

Is there a way for three separate users/accounts to share a list? I have a subscription signup on a party I share. Is there a way for the one list to segment per blog? We use inlinkZ which share the party post in realtime.

This is the problem I have:

I'm doing maintenance updating my old blog post,  but this is understand like new content in my blog, so it's send to all my subscribers list. I saw in wordpress support forum that I can fix it using a merge tag "Categories", but I don't find where and how to do it in Mailchimp.

Does anybody know how to do it? Thanks to everybody!
