What can I edit?

Almost everything. Most MailChimp list management forms, emails, and confirmation screens can be customized any way you want to match the look and feel of your website. You can also set up meta redirects to send users to custom confirmation screens on your website.

Don't alter the unique Form tags, field names, and *|MERGE|* tags, though, because they're dedicated to your list and need to stay the same. Look over the image below to see what highlighted areas can be edited, and what should be left as-is.
