How to mass delete users from list

Postby add1ct1v3 » 7:11am, Mon 19 Aug, 2013

Hello,

Some of the people receiving our newsletter can't bother to click the unsubscribe link. I've been away for 2 weeks and now I have 1000+ users to remove. Is there a way to remove all at once ? Thanks.

Looking at the new version 3, log in and go to
Code: Select all
http://yourdomainhere/lists/admin/?page=massunconfirm
and paste your list in there (this is reached via the Suppression List link in the navigation. The same page is reached in version 2 via Manage Users > Mass unconfirm.

If you actually want to get rid of these users from your database, the easiest way would be to run a database query to massively increase their bounce count, then use the facility to delete users with more than 15 bounces.

I am wanting to Mass Unconfirm our whole distribution list using version 2.10.5.
I am being asked to paste the emails into a box. How can I directly import the whole distribution list to this box? I have used the export users function and a spreadsheet was generated with emails BUT also with what mailings they chose to receive....I would like to separate the emails from the rest of the line, but i don't know how. They look like this:
bobbjojo@ddrcc.com Newsletter telehealth/video-conference sessions Mental Health Sessions Child Health Sessions ECHC

I don't want to have to manually go through 11000plus lines...can anyone help?

Thanks,
