OK, further to what I have already said, I like most users it seems would like an unsubscribe feature that does not require the user to log on.

To accomplish this I have replaced the unsubscribe.php file with my own that accepts one URL parameter "UserEmail" the user is presented with a "Confirm" button which when pressed updates the database setting the "UserSubscribed" field to 0.

In my newsletter template I have added the following link:

<a href="http://newsletter.livingwisdom.com.au/unsubscribe.php?UserEmail=*:UserEmail:*">Unsubscribe</a>

This should work fine, using the UserEmail token. I have two issues. One, when I click on the "unsubscribe" link I get sent to the following URL:

newsletter.livingwisdom.com.au/home/livingwi/public_html/newsletter/link.php?id=MjdAQF9QTV9TRVBfQEAxQEBfUE1fU0VQX0BAMjM=

This link is not resolving correctly to the root of my website (the part in red is superfluous)

Secondly when I remove the the red portion of the url and refresh the page, I'm sent to:

unsubscribe.php?UserEmail=*:UserEmail:*

As you can see the UserEmail token has not resolved correctly.
