    Hello, When using Sendy's default double-optin email, or creating my own as below, the confirmation_link resolves to an unclickable (inactive) link in some email programs such as Thunderbird. I suspect that this is because it is part of an html-email, but it isn't syntactically a link (href..).

    Example Mail:

    Hi!
    Thanks for subscribing to our email list.
    Please confirm your subscription by clicking the link below:
    
    [confirmation_link]
    

    Resolves to:

    Hi!
    Thanks for subscribing to our email list.
    Please confirm your subscription by clicking the link below:

    But the link is only clickable in some email clients. I suspect this is because it isn't really a formatted href-link.
    (I changed the domain and the listID):

    Note: Links created with "href" in the double-optin mail become active!

    Question: How to create a fully formatted confirmation link, preferably using my own anchor text, such as CLICK HERE TO CONFIRM?

    Note: In the Thank You mail, the unsubscribe link created with becomes perfectly clickable.

    Thank you very much for your help.
