Use this method to resubscribe contacts that have been marked as ‘cleaned’ in your Mailchimp list.
Contacts with a status of cleaned in Mailchimp are those email addresses where Mailchimp has received notification from the recipients email server that the email address does not exist. Unfortunately contacts can occasionally be marked as cleaned where the email address is in fact valid.
Resubscribing a cleaned email address is easily done per the instructions below.
- Login to Mailchimp.
- Click Lists.
- Click the drop-down menu next to the list you want to work with, and click Signup forms.
- Click the Select button next to Form builder.
- Copy the Signup form URL and open that URL in your browser.
- Submit the email address and any other necessary details using this form.
Note: The only means of changing the status of a contact from cleaned to subscribed is by subscribing the cleaned contact via a Mailchimp hosted form.
