This is a module that allows visitors to sign up for a mailing list that’s powered by MailChimp.

There was a previous Joomla module that had much the same functionality, but there were several problems with it: it wasn’t Joomla 1.5 native, it wasn’t GPL, and there was a security hole in it. So we’ve completely rewritten the module. This one is J1.5 native, it is GPL, and we’ve left out the security hole.

Usage: From the admin site, provide your MailChimp user name and password, and the mailing list id of the list you want the user to subscribe to. From the front side, the user types in his or her email address and clicks the submit button. The module does an AJAX call to the subscription program, so there is no page refresh.
