A way of collecting email addresses. Someone asks to be placed on your mailing list (thereby "opting in"), but is not included on the list until they have responded to a confirming email, verifying their desire to subscribe to your list. They have, in effect, opted in twice, so the process is referred to as double opt-in.

Generally, the visitor must either a) click a link in the email or b) reply to the email. This is called double opt-in.

A term coined by spammers to refer to the normal operation of secure electronic mailing list software. A new subscriber first gives his/her address to the list software (for instance, on a Web page) and then confirms subscription after receiving an e-mail asking if it was really him/her. This ensures that no person can subscribe someone else out of malice or error. The intention of the term "double opt-in" is to make it appear that the confirmation is a duplication of effort; and thus, to justify not confirming subscriptions. Mail system administrators and non-spam mailing list operators refer to confirmed subscription or closed-loop opt-in.
