Can I have variables in the subject?

Postby dggmez » 12:29pm, Fri 24 Oct, 2014

I'm trying to do something like this for the subject:

"[FIRST_NAME], check the new things we have for you!"

But it doesn't work. The message is send exactly like that without replacing the variable with the name of the subscribers. The variables work flawlessly on the body of the message though.

Sorry for my English,
phpList newbie
