Send Confirmation Email

I am sending an email via emailComeBack.php. When the recipient clicks on Unsubscribe I want an email sent back to me saying the recipient is unsubscribing. No data base connection here.

In the email template IBCF2012.php I have "Unsubscribe" linked to IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe.php. In IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe.php I have set the Properties Form Action by clicking on the Data Sources button and in Field setting the URL to <?php echo(isset($_SESSION["waue_IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe_1_Log"])?$_SESSION["waue_IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe_1_Log"]:""); ?>

Also in IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe.php I have set the Server Behavior Universal Email 1 (webassist/email/templates/Blank_5.php) From button to the Select Data Binding <?php echo (isset($_SESSION["waue_IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe_1_From"])?$_SESSION["waue_IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe_1_From"]:""); ?>

Doesn't send the email.

Have tried a couple other combinations but cannot seem to hit on the right one. Hoping I am going in the right direction here, can you take a look? Thanks.

It's not going to work this way.

In the unsubscribe link, you will need to pass the email as a URL parameter:


<a href="http://mydomain.com/unsubscripe.php?email=johndoe@company.com">Unsubscribe</a>

most hosts require that the from address be a valid email address for your domain but you can set the return Address to use a dynamic value.

Open the bindings panel, click the plus button and select URL variable, set the URL Variable name to email, and use that binding for the return address setting.

Getting there. Here is where I am at.

The page emailComeBack.php emails the template IBCRF2012.php correctly.

In the template IBCRF2012.php I linked the word Unsubscribe in the footer (passed the email as a URL parameter) to <a href="http://ibcrf.org/IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe.php?email=phillthill@gmail.com">.

In the file IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe.php I added the URL Variable "mail" to the bindings panel.

#1 scenario for file IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe.php
In the Server Behavior Universal Email 1 (webassist/email/templates/Blank_5.php) I assigned Trigger to any form post.
I assigned From to the URL variable, email, <?php echo $_GET['email']; ?>.
I assigned To to <?php echo (isset($_SESSION["waue_IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe_1_To"])?$_SESSION["waue_IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe_1_To"]:""); ?>.

When I click on Unsubscribe in the email I am directed to IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe.php?email=phillthill@gmail.com
Unfortunately, this scenario does not send an email back to me.

#2 scenario for file IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe.php
In the Server Behavior Universal Email 1 (webassist/email/templates/Blank_5.php). I assigned Trigger to the URL variable, email, <?php echo $_GET['email']; ?>.
I assigned From to <?php echo(isset($_SESSION["waue_IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe_1_From"])?$_SESSION["waue_IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe_1_From"]:""); ?>.
I assigned To to <?php echo(isset($_SESSION["waue_IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe_1_To"])?$_SESSION["waue_IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe_1_To"]:""); ?>.

When I click on Unsubscribe in the email I "think" the email back to me has fired because the page I am directed to is the Server Behavior Universal Email 1 Go To Page address IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe.html not IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe.php.
Unfortunately, this scenario does not send an email back to me either.

Could you suggest a couple more ideas please?

dont use the form post as the trigger.

for the trigger, click the lightning bolt icon and select the mail URL binding.

Bingo!
This works for trigger
$_GET['email'] sends to IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe.html
This does not work
$_GET[''] sends to IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe.php?email=phillthill@gmail.com
From
<?php echo (isset($_SESSION["waue_IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe_1_To"])?$_SESSION["waue_IBCRF-ThankYouUnsubscribe_1_To"]:""); ?>
To
myaddress@mysite.com

Thank you!

Unsubscribe email

One more step, please. I am having an issue getting an Unsubscribe confirming email back to me to link to the address of the original email recipient.

The scenario is I am sending an email, IBCRF2012.php, via emailComeBack.php.
When the recipient clicks on Unsubscribe another email sent back to me, templates_13.php, saying the recipient is unsubscribing does not include the address of the original email recipient of IBCRF2012.php.
You can see i have tried a couple things on templates_13.php but obviously not getting the recipients address in the body of the email.

Is this doable?

use:
<?php echo $_GET['email']; ?>


to write the recipients email in the body
