Mailchimp 101 – Subscriber Lists (Creating One)

The starting point for MailChimp is the establishment of a subscriber list.  Each list in MailChimp is completely separate from the others. Because lists are independent of one another and don’t share any information, the total subscriber count used to determine the monthly plan fee will include duplicate email addresses each time they appear in a list.
