Charley’s app in Zapier is in Beta mode and needs testers! To become a tester, just use this invite link.
Mailing List Improvements
Your mailing list(s) is the most valuable part of your email marketing strategy. It’s why we are continually working to improve it and further extend the capabilities.
- New List Settings tab
Located on the mailing list’s detail page, use it to configure single vs double opt-in, secret inbound address and preview email settings. It also allows you to set the list to public or private status, which controls whether the list will appear in the Subscription Portal.

- List Unsubscribe Header
Many email clients provide a way for users to unsubscribe from that sender via a link located in the in the email header. Charley automatically adds the List Unsubscribe header, which will also help your deliverability rate.
The List Unsubscription header is automatically added to your mailings, making it easier for users to manage their subscriptions and increases the likelihood you won’t end up in the spam folder.
Miscellaneous Improvements / Bug Fixes

Added support to text-only versions of your email to be automatically generated for the 3 people in the world that still don’t have a modern email client. 😉
