In the testui demo website subscribing to a list with an email address that's already subscribed returns the following:

code: 214, error: xxx is already subscribed to list xxx". 

But I can't figure out how to get such an error msg from listSubscribeOutput.execute().  api_ErrorMessages is always empty.  Is there a reason for this or something I'm missing?


Edit:  Never mind I figured it out!  It was "update existing" needs to be false for it to complain about existing email addresses.  Honestly I looked at this for ages before I decided to post, then within 2 minutes of posting I saw it!!

Don't you just hate when that happens :-)

I did the same thing the other day with PayPal support -- couldn't figure why my direct payment, recurring billing wasn't working in the sandbox, reported an issue, and then realized I had never switched my test to use my 'pro' account from the 'standard' I was testing for another client.
