Note: GetResponse uses the term Campaign for what MemberMouse considers to be a list.
Disable Opt-in Requirement via API (optional)
By default, GetResponse requires an opt-in process for all email addresses added via their API. MemberMouse utilizes the GetResponse API to automatically add and move members between lists based on their access rights. When the opt-in process is enabled, the member will receive an email from GetResponse every time they're added to a list asking them to click a link to confirm they want to be added. Not only does this effect the user experience, it also creates a situation where GetResponse can become out of sync with MemberMouse. If the member chooses to simply ignore the confirmation email, they won't be added to list as you expected.
The opt-in process has to be disabled for each list you want to use with MemberMouse and you need to email GetResponse to ask them to disable it. Just email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, specify that you'd like the opt-in process disabled for contacts added via the API and specify the names of all the lists you want it disabled for.
