Once you add the widget to your sidebar in Appearance > Widgets, you’ll see the widget settings look like this:

Subscribe by email settings

Title:  Allows you to add your own custom title.  For example, Subscribe to this blog by email.

Text:  Allows you to customize the information on the widget.  For example, you could change it from ‘Completely spam free, out out any time.’ to ‘You can unsubscribe at any time.’

Subscribe button text:  Used to change the message on the subscribe button.

Auto-out in:  By default, new subscribers are sent an email and they have 7 days to click on the link to confirm they wish to subscribe to your posts by email.   Subscribers won’t receive any emails until they have confirmed and are removed from your subscribers list if they don’t confirm.  If you check this box subscribers are automatically added to your email list and don’t need to confirm they want to subscribe.
