Newsletter Email Template in Transactional Email

I see in default Transactional Emails templates that there are a few Newsletter related templates:
- Newsletter subscription confirmation
- Newsletter subscription success
- Newsletter unsubscription success

I created custom templates based on these defaults and wanted to assign these newly created templates to be used by the Newsletter module.

However, I can’t find where I can set these.

There is no ‘Newsletter’ in System > Configuration.

And even if I go to the Newsletter > Newsletter Template, that only allows me to CREATE new templates. I don’t know where to go or what to set so I can USE them.

Does anyone know where to set these email templates for Newsletter?

Thanks.

I too have the same issue. I would like to send a custom email in addition to the invoice when certain products or products from a certain categroy are purchased. This is useful when selling non tangible items like event tickets when you need to relay extra info to the customer such as will call or time to arrive, etc…

Hi Luis,
(sorry for my english, im french) but here are some answers :

First :
“The Succes Email works great and i can receive it using my template, but i get no confirmation email when i use the link to “confirm” the subscription
(btw, i selected Yes on Need to Confirm)”
>> If u select “yes” to “need to confirm”, ur server will only send a mail with the pass and log of the suscriber, but i think it is not a ggod idea to send on the same mail the both informations (cause of the confidentiality)

For the other question about the mail confirmation for the confirm newsletter suscription, that point doesn’t work. I don’t know why but, this fonction worked in an older version of magento with a Newsletter section in the admin system configuration. But in this version Varien decide to not leave it, we don’t know why (sure that they work on it and we have to wait for). Anyway, for me in france we need this option (confirmation email) because we have a law who oblige use to receive a confirmation suscription from the customer before to send a newsletter, thats a big point.
So we have to be patient and let Magento team work on that point.
Regards

Im not sure if I understand your problem correctly… but I can give you some hints

I looked into app/code/core/Mage/Newsletter/Model/Subscriber.php
and a logic behing this is to omit confirmation email for already logged users
confirmation email is sent only to GUEST (try logout from store, and then subscribe newsletter… works?)
Above mentioned fix in admin panel is neccesary too, of course.

This logic assumes, that registered user already agreed to receiving commercial emails from store, so no confirmation is neccesary.
but if you need confirmation email sent to any user group, you may comment out line 295 in this file, like this:

app/code/core/Mage/Newsletter/Model/Subscriber.php
293 if ($customerSession->isLoggedIn()) {
294 $this->setStoreId($customerSession->getCustomer()->getStoreIId());
295 // $this->setStatus(self::STATUS_SUBSCRIBED);

hope it helps a little smile

I am attempting to modify the Newsletter that it is sent out… I find nowhere in the admin panel where I am able to specify my unique transactional mail for Newsletters. 

I can find a place for new customer emails… and wish list emails but I am hoping to add a customized Newletter welcome email.

Can someone point me to the area I’m missing???

Thanks.

<UPDATE> This is fixed in version 1.1.2.  Sorry for the post!

I second that. Where do you find the signup, confirmation, and subscription confirmation code to modify?
