    With the Mass Subscriptions section open, there are two ways to add member information:

    • Enter each Address one at a time or copy and paste them in the text box, one address per line.

    • Specify a File to Upload. This must be a plain text file, one address per line. Create by typing in a plain text editor such as MS Windows Wordpad or Notepad, and Apple Macintosh Plain Text Editor.


Enter Each Address 

  1. Scroll down to the Member Address text box.

  2. Enter the addresses into the text box with one address per line. They may be typed in or copied from a file.

  6. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Submit Your Changes button.

  7. The mailing list will tell you which addresses have been successfully subscribed and unsuccessfully subscribed. You will need to fix any addresses and add them manually. Alternately you can delete all the addresses from the list, fix the incorrect ones in the file, and reload them.

Note: If you save your email addresses in a spreadsheet or text file, you can easily use that file to remove an entire list of members at a later time. See   Deleting Members for more information about how to delete members using a spreadsheet or text file.
