Hi Experts,
I have a small newsletter system built with Asp.net
What I want to do is send a Unsubscribe option in the Newsletter,and when user clicks on this link automatically change the subscription status to '1' in database (status ='1' indicates that he is removed from the sending list).
How can I do this?

Do you know how to connect to the database? If so, it'd be as easy as performing an UPDATE.

Kind regards,

You can do that by customizing each Unsubscribe link you send. ie: Add a url parameter to it.

You mean attaching an E-mail id as a parameter?
then reading the querystring and then updating database depending on that value.
Is there any other way to do?

Yes, that's the only way you can track links.

Well they can always view the URL if they want to, so there's no way of really hiding it.
