[ Magento - change address to which confirmation is sent after newsletter subscription ]
By default, Magento sends out a confirmation email (to the user) after a user subscribes to the newsletter. Is it possible to change the email address to which the confirmation is sent?
Refer to my answer to your question about changing the action path of the
subscribe.phtml file. If you override the
subscriberController.php, you will be able to add in all your extra requirements, such as emailing the store admin, changing the information in the outgoing email, etc.
There is a detailed walkthrough on the Magento wiki on how to configure Magento to use your custom controller instead of the core. This is best practice as it means that future patches/upgrades from Magento shouldn't break your customization.
