If your Google email account is cluttered with countless and unwanted email subscriptions, a new free online service called unroll.me may just well do the trick. Unroll.me works by batch unrolling your subscriptions in a matter of minutes.

As for now, Unroll.me only works with subscriptions delivered to Gmail accounts. Yahoo and other mail services will be coming on board soon. To get started with Unroll.me, you simply need to provide your email and password, and Unroll.me will automatically locate your email subscriptions. After processing your subscriptions, Unroll.me provides a list of them.

If you feel a little unsure about un-subscribing to some of the emails, Unroll.me has got you covered. You can check which emails you want to keep and which you want to discontinue. If you have several subscriptions, Unroll.me can be easier than unsubscribing them one at a time. Plus, unroll.me can go through and locate those subscriptions that you may overlook in your crowded inbox.

The subscriptions you want to keep get categorized into a special Rollup box, where you can view them in your account. You can also star and manage particular subscription emails, and designate which part of the day you would like Unroll.me to serve up your emails.

You can also preview and navigate through your Rollup in your account, so you don’t have to open your Gmail to view them. In addition, all your unsubscribed emails are listed in the Unsubscribed folder, but it doesn’t look as if you can re-enroll them once unsubscribed.

    Wow how do you unroll from unroll.me! Thought it would do what its motto claims to do but so not the case. Still getting all the junk mail to the inbox and now you can add unroll.me emails to the list.

      Sammy, try writing to Jack above and see what he says about unsubscribing to the service. I need to check back on my unrolled subcriptions to see if any are still not arriving.

    Stay the hell away from this service: it identified 900+ "subscriptions" in my gmail, which was basically every person who's ever sent me email. Obviously, I wasnt going to curate 900+ addresses , so i just figured it would actually work out which were real subscriptions. Instead, it intercepted every email in the account, sending me a daily round-up instead. Immediately disabled my account, the service is useless. If it requires that much individual control to do anything useful, then I could just as easily deal with it myself using rules, folders, and this little trick I like to "UNSUBSCRIBE" link in unwanted newsletters.

      Hmmm, I didn't have your problem it all. It only identified about 18 subscriptions for me, and done of them were personal emails. You should write to them about the problem you encountered.

    It seems to use OAuth, so the author made a mistake. I was really suspicious that a brand new service would require entering password, do went there to check. When I selected Gmail from dropdown, I got the familiar google OAuth page for confirmation. I wish this was there a few days back when I went through some 50 services to unsubscribe manually. I need to do the same again for yahoo mail, but they don't yet support.

      Hari, you're right, I should have made the clarification about authorization. Thanks.

    The problem is in spam messages not in messages unsubscribe option. Seems like someone skipped on market research, isnt it?

      No, sometimes I sign up for a subscription, but after a while I simply just am no longer interested in getting the emails. That's the reason I use one of my Gmail accounts for subscribing to sites I'm only temporarily interested in.

      John, I should clarify, that the site is not asking for your password. You go through the Gmail Oauth process so they can get access.

      Yeah, it's pain sometimes to go back and unsubscribe to say 20 email subscriptions one at a time.

      That's my main concern too , I don't feel very comfortable providing my password to a third party.
