I got an account with Sendinblue.. You can send up to 300 messages a day before you have to upgrade to a paid account. What I want to do is when a user wants to make a comment on a post they will have to put in their first name and email address and then have the autoresponder send them a verification message and then another message thanking them for joining. Once a user is verified I don't want for them to have to go though that process again every time they want to comment.

Hey Neil,

Do you mean you want to create a double-opt in form using SendInBlue perhaps? See screen print below...

If so... it seems you can: https://help.sendinblue.com/hc/en-us/articles/208733429-Can-I-create-a-double-opt-in-subscription-form-

Hope you find this helpful.

thanks After ChrystopherJ said it could discourage people from commenting I don't know if I'll do it that way. I'm not sure Sendinnblue has landing pages I could use. I signed up when I saw the freebie deal.

It's not usually the thing to do, but you could lock your website comments down to registered users only. Then integrate a plugin that works with your autoresponder to sync your users to it. But doing this, you will not be able to use SiteComments and it will also put a lot of people off from commenting in general, including the Give & Take thread.

I don't use site comments. I look at the sites for ideas but after my excellent analysis last time was rejected I wash my hands of them. Please pass the disinfectant

It was an idea. I want to build an email list.
