I love SE. I began with some newsletters, and then I created my account with same email that I subscribed on newsletters. But I can see empty newsletter tab. Is it normal? Do I resubscribe to newsletters with the account I have logged in? Will I receive double news?

EDIT: more info

I subscribed to IT Security newsletter before to create my SE account. I try resubscribe to IT Security newsletter when I logged. The system calls me reconfirm by email and print in page 'resend confirm'!

After I confirm resubscribe, the newsletter tab was filled about all my subscriptions!

It is a small bug.

This is by design:

First, you subscribed to 10 newsletters, including IT Security, anonymously (i.e. these subscriptions were not associated with a stackexchange.com user).

Then, you created a stackexchange.com user. The newsletters were not associated with your user at this time, since your email hadn't been confirmed yet.

When you then subscribed to IT Security while logged in, and subsequently confirmed your email address, the 10 anonymous subscriptions were automatically added to your account.
