How do I get people subscribing to my email lists?

I've inserted the email subscription plugin into my theme, and it displays an empty dropdown box (which I assume is to choose which list you want to sign up for) and a text field. It's empty both when I am signed in and when I'm not. I have two contact lists set up and one campaign set up that includes both of those lists. I just can't seem to make anything show up.

On a related note, is it necessary for someone to have an account at my site in order to subscribe to my email lists?

Thanks,

Derek

    Derek,

    As a quick check, make sure you have assigned a contact list to the theme you are using. If the theme has no assigned contact lists, the drop down will be blank. You don't have to assign an Account Type, but it is a handy feature for filtering the displayed list by account type.

    A user doesn't have to be logged in to subscribe to a mailing list via the subscription block.

    Regards,

    Richard

    Also check the list type .. I believe only Email lists show up in that plugin.
