Support » Plugin: MailChimp User Sync » Handling refused email address from MailChimp

    Hello,

    I’d like to see how we can manage the following error from MailChimp:

    Response: 400 Bad Request – {“type”:”http://developer.mailchimp.com/documentation/mailchimp/guides/error-glossary/”,”title”:”Invalid Resource”,”status”:400,”detail”:”bademailaddress.com has signed up to a lot of lists very recently; we’re not allowing more signups for now”,”instance”:”0f17d199-asdfasdf561asdf-45d0-a383-1fasdf8c6df0f1ce”}

    This happens every time an existing WordPress user is synced.

    Personally I would like to automatically delete the user or at least change their subscription to something like “Restricted”…

    What do you think?

    This is a temporary ban on an email, done by MailChimp after someone signed up to a lot of lists in a short amount of time. Often these emails are spammers.

    This is an error returned by MailChimp, we can’t change much about the situation from our side. This email will not be added to your MailChimp list.

    Interesting idea, to automatically delete these users from your WordPress! I will add it to an ever growing list of feature requests. If/when this will actually be added I can’t say.

    Hope that helps. If you have any questions, please let us know!
