I agree. Just a very tiny edit : "Please click the following link to confirm it's really you:" (instead of you're really you)

Looks good to me. I only made it up when I wrote the original text :-) Good to see some thought has gone into it.

@michiel Yes the text should be uppercase -- now updated in the issue description.

@michiel We will add [DOMAIN] as a new placeholder. The data is in the phplist_config table of the database on both self hosted and hosted, so this should be relatively straightforward to retrieve and insert in sendemaillib.php or lib.php.

[DOMAIN] and [WEBSITE] should work already
