You can easily edit, delete or view entries in your mailing list by the email address. You can easily search your entire mailing list for the needed entry.

By setting this, every time someone subscribes to the mailing list, whether through the autoresponder or by using a subscribe HTML form, the script will automatically send them a welcome message.
