How Do I Unsubscribe From Email Lists? Here’s a Tip

We all like getting free stuff, right? That’s why we register to win free stuff.

If you do to register, they usually ask for an email address. And what do they do with that email address? They sell it to other companies.

Let’s face it: today’s business practices encourage people to give up their email addresses in exchange for special offers and discounts. If you provide your email address, the company can direct their marketing to your inbox. Here’s a way to minimize those emails.

First off, if you don’t have a “Burner” email address, are you even living in 2022? An email address to use ONLY when registering for offers, discounts, email receipts, or free content. An email address that you only give out to people/companies you don’t really want to be contacted by. They only did it for the 20% discount or to save paper by emailing the receipt. Do it now. Set up a burner account through GMail or Yahoo or similar.

When you get emails in your work or personal inbox from people or companies you’d rather not get them from, there’s no really easy way to magically make them disappear.

However, there is a tip you can use to reduce the number of emails you receive from email lists.

This tip will take some time, but a little maintenance in the future will help keep emails to a minimum.

We use Microsoft Office Outlook as our company-wide business email system, and that’s how I find emails from email lists that I want to unsubscribe from.

When you open your email, go to the “Search email” block in your email system. Then type the word “unsubscribe” and you should immediately see all emails that contain the word “unsubscribe”.

If your inbox now looks like mine before I tried this, you’re looking at dozens of emails, possibly hundreds.

Sorting these results alphabetically makes it easy to see who sent the email. If it is from a company you no longer wish to receive correspondence from, open the email and click the unsubscribe button below.

You should only have to unsubscribe from each sender once.

For example, if you receive emails from Uncle Bob’s Grocery Coupon Warehouse each day with a new offer, you should only need to click on one of the emails from Uncle Bob’s Grocery Coupon Warehouse to unsubscribe.

When you click the unsubscribe button, you are often presented with several options: unsubscribe, settings, change my information, edit profile, etc. Choose what is best for you.

After going through each sender and unsubscribing, you can select the emails of people you no longer wish to receive correspondence from and delete them in bulk!

Now for the maintenance part I mentioned earlier, if you check “unsubscribe” on a daily or weekly basis, you can keep your spam emails to a minimum.
