If I subscribe to the newsletter as guest I get a email to confirm my subscribtion but after I confirm I don't get a confirmation mail that I am subscribed now.

How can I change this to get the confirmation mail?

  • If it's just one mail that's not sending check for HTML syntax issues, optionally use the default email template. EDIT: check this post: magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/237771 Sep 11, 2013 at 8:08
  • @SanderMangel If I subscribe as registered user I get this email so I think the template is fine. It is just not send if I subscribe as guest. Sep 11, 2013 at 8:19

As Sander Mangel pointed out the solution is in app/code/core/Mage/Newsletter/Model/Subscriber.php. Copy this file to app/code/local/Mage/Newsletter/Model/Subscriber.php

Find function confirm($code) (Line 470 in CE- and add $this->sendConfirmationSuccessEmail();

Now the function should look like this:

public function confirm($code)
    if($this->getCode()==$code) {
        // This is new:
        return true;

    return false;
