The Best Way to Unsubscribe From Email Newsletters

Head to Unsubscriber’s website and you’ll need to sign up with your email account. The service supports Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, and AOL. Other IMAP-enabled email services, like Comcast and Time Warner, work as well.

Sign into your email if needed, then provide Unsubscriber access to your email account. Once you connect your account, you’ll see Unsubscriber’s homepage.

However, the action happens in your email inbox. In your list of filters/labels (usually found on the left side of your inbox), you’ll see a new Unsubscribe label. Note that it may take some time for this to appear; you may need to wait up to a day if you don’t see it.

Whenever you receive an email you want to unsubscribe from, simply drag it onto the Unsubscribe label. The service will take care of the rest. You’ll unsubscribe from those messages, and any new emails from that sender will go into the Unsubscribe folder in the meantime. That’s it, and it even works the same way on mobile.

If you ever want to see what you’ve unsubscribed from or re-subscribe, just log into Unsubscriber again. Click Re-subscribe next to a sender to being getting their messages again.

Note that since Unsubscriber is a free service, the company collects information about the commercial emails you receive for marketing purposes. Your email provider probably collects far more information about you than this, but you should still be aware.

    I can mark unwanted mails as Junk so Outlook will put those senders' mails to Junk Folder.
    What is the difference?

      Marking an email as junk/spam participate in the global filtering system of the platform you are using (Outlook, Gmail, etc). Since those emails are not actual junk email (you.kst likely subscribed to them somehow) then you are contributing to create false positive flags on those emails that can ultimately affect other users.

      Also flags get an email as junk/spam doesn't you subscribe you from it. Your email stays in the sender's database and they keep sending you emails.

      Instead, unsubscribing (from legit newsletters) removes your email from the sender's database, stops him from sending the newsletters which overall contributes to reducing global network traffic and finally it doesn't create false positive in the spam filters.
