    I have a form created through the form module that I want to have users fill and also subscribe them to a mailing list at the same time.  I went to "Mail Lists" and created the list and then went under it's advanced settings and added a connection source for "Sitefinity forms module".  Then I selected the form I created and mapped the First Name, Last Name, Email fields to the matching fields of the form.  Saved it and then tested.  Submitting the form generates responses via the forms module, but subscribers never get added to the mail list.

    I doubt I would need them for this part, but I do have all the SMTP settings squared away as my form notifications and mail campaigns do work on their own.  Is there an additional setting somewhere to enable subscribers via forms that I am missing?

    I also recycled the app pool without any luck.

    Wow I cannot believe this is the case, but I ran across an old post and then this PITS 

    http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/details/Issue=14924

    So I decided to just created a mail campaign and try sending it.  It comes up telling me that I am sending to 0 Subscribers, but it does send out to the dynamic list i.e. form submissions that are tied to this list via the add connection steps.

    Because it thinks there are no subscribers I will not have any stats on this campaign and furthermore I will not be able to manually remove these subscribers should I need to.  How is this feature useful to anyone?

    Edit:  I did some more digging to see if I can understand how this works.  Is this correct?  When making a mailing list like I have done it will look at the form responses and treat those responses themselves as the "list" and then use the mapping rules to decide how to send out the emails?  So at any point that a response is removed from the forms module area it essentially has unsubscribed that person?

    Hi Stasey,

     Indeed, currently the subscribers will not appear in the UI when you make a dynamic mailing list. However, they will still receive the email campaigns.

    Is there any improvements with this in newer versions of Sitefinity. It would be far more valuable to have the email tracking capabilities that campaigns provide out of the box to be part of this functionality. I feel that subscribers should be created/mapped when a mailing list is associated to a form...
