Hello Michael,

Thanks for your detailed comments!

Thats what I guessed, too. But I mentioned it anyway to show all possible information in context.

As you said, it depends if this will be the right file. I'll try the patch soon; maybe already this evening but I have to do some gardening first... :-/

Yeah, ouch! *g* I've installed the program patch now and I'll try to patch the files again later in the right way...

That may be. I don't have a clue which class I used by the extension.

I thought the Direct Mail Subscription (Extkey: direct_mail_subscription @ v1.10) of Kaspar provides this? I also have the extension Email Address Subscription (Extkey: sr_email_subscribe @ v1.10) installed but I don't use it at the moment. Furthermore I use the direct mail extension @ version 2.1.4 but I haven't tried any test newsletters yet.
