Thanks for your reply! I'd like to build an application that gives the user an option to send a test campaign so will likely use the 'sendTest' function in the CampaignScheduleService class. I've been able to build an application that simply creates and sends a campaign, but we'd like to send a test campaign first, and if we do that, is that test campaign automatically stored in the constant contact account as a draft? And once the test campaign is sent, and if it's stored as a draft, I would like to give the user the opportunity send that draft as an actual campaign via the 'createSchedule' function in the CampaignScheduleService class. That part I have been able to do, so I think it's the creating and sending a draft first that I need help with - any examples or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Do existing but *unsubscribed* contacts get a confirmation when joining a new list?
While buidling our custom forms and testing them through the API, I wanted to ensure that the opt in source is action_by_visitor so a subscriber that was unsubscribed and even deleted from the constant contact database gets a confirmation email.
$optParams = array('action_by' => 'ACTION_BY_VISITOR');
When testing the form, I outputted the constant contact object created, and it looks like the 'opt_in_source' was correctly listed as 'action_by_visitor', but I never received any confirmation emails after subscribing with valid test emails. Here's the printed array of contact fields:
[email_addresses] => Array (  => Ctct\Components\Contacts\EmailAddress Object ( [id] => 29545aa0-81a1-11e5-a9b3-d4ae52733bf0 [status] => ACTIVE [confirm_status] => NO_CONFIRMATION_REQUIRED [opt_in_source] => ACTION_BY_VISITOR [opt_in_date] => o'2015-11-02T20:34:48.000Z [opt_out_date] => [email_address] => REDACTED ) )
It says 'confirm_status' is 'no_confirmation_required'. I thought that when someone signs up for a list (that they have not subscribed to before or one that they previously unsubscribed from), they receive a confirmation email from constant contact.
I just wanted clarification for confirmations sent to existing and unsubscribed and/or deleted contacts when they sign up for new lists.
