Yeah, I got all that about the confirmation now. Thanks to Mike's
description and discussion, I understand what's being suggested.
However, as I explained, we do have a bounce setup that cleans up old,
unused email addresses because they do bounce back to us (user unknown,
etc.). The problem with the annual email cleanup message is that not all
users get emails, some are subscribed to browser only, which means they do
not get any emails and only read the messages off the webpage (after
logging in, only members can acess this portion of the website). Those
people would never get the annual cleanup email, and if it's been awhile
since they visited the website, they might be unsubscribed for not
responding. Even though you may think that's not a problem, some people
only access when they are having some type of difficulty with their health
and may not look in when things are going well for them.
