I am not sending manual activation links
The only one I sent was an exception
We were previosly using ElasticEmail to send emails, which had a big “Unsubscribe” button in the bottom of all emails. So, some users clicked unsubscribe, but they didn’t realize it also unsubscribed them from all emails, including forgot password, payments, etc.
In community emails, for example, there were two unsubscribe buttons: the official community one, and the elastic email one, which was confusing.
We now use a self-hosted email system, all under our entire control, so there’s no more “Unsubscribe” button.
All email gets delivered, as users can never unsubscribe from transactional emails.
If you don’t receive an email, check your Spam folder. It may be there.
