Support » Plugin: MailPoet - emails and newsletters in WordPress » Adding new subscriber with same email address will overwrite

  • Resolved karencheah


    Without knowing that an email has been subscribed, if you then add as a new subscriber (as admin on the backend), it will overwrite/update the existing one without any warning. The same message is displayed that the subscriber has been added. There is no warning that the email has already subscribed to the list. Can you please advise if there is any setting to warn of duplicates? Thanks.

    @karencheah this is the expected behavior by design for security reasons.

    We don’t want to inform bots that a subscriber is already on a list.

    Makes sense?

    I can understand that for the frontend (public facing) but when logged in as admin at the backend, that shouldn’t be a concern.
