Note: TrafficWave have double opt-in requirement, this means that somebody that subscribed to your list will still have to go and confirm the subscription from their email before they will show up in your list and begin to receive your email series. 
If they subscribe to your list, TrafficWave will send them an email with a link to confirm their subscription, once they click on this link, you will get a notification and they will begin to receive your email series.
