Confirmation E-mails

Introduction

To help ensure that the e-mail addresses being submitted with galleries are valid, AutoGallery SQL includes a confirmation e-mail feature. If you have this option enabled, an e-mail message will be sent to the gallery submitter immediately after their gallery has been submitted. They will need to visit a link in that e-mail message in order to confirm their submission. This document contains additional information about the confirmation e-mail.

Confirmation Options

There are two different ways that the software can handle gallery confirmations. The first is to require that the submitter visit a URL and copy a string of characters into a web-based form field. The second is to simply have a clickable URL in the confirmation e-mail that the submitter can click on to confirm their submission. There are benifits to both methods, which will be explained further.
