You cannot opt out of @MailChimp mails

by Volker Weber

Hi Volker, subscription preferences are handled on a per-list basis and there's not a global unsubscribe option at this time. If you'd like to be removed from any given list, you can click on the Unsubscribe link within a received campaign which will immediately and automatically remove your email address.

If you don't want them stuffing your inbox with future mailings, you have to automatically filter their mail and declare it as spam. You train the system.

The best solution I have found to this sort of thing is to use https://unroll.me

Not a good idea. https://plus.google.com/+SimonPhipps/posts/fJQZbGuoY9G

"Unsubscribe" is quite a good search term for your inbox filter.

Doesnt Mailchimp just provide infrastructure for sending Newsletters?

I would blame maintainers of the individual lists for adding your address !

Martin Posch, 2014-02-28 10:50

I am not blaming. I want to opt out.

What happens when you want to opt in to one, if you've set a global rule to deny all?

Carl tyler, 2014-02-28 15:35

I don't. So far I have been opted in by marketing people.

Just restrict therm as sending servers no matter who uses the service? One stop block. Many do that for ConstantContact

too bad that there are people misusing these services (Mailchimp and Sendgrid), because many web services use them to send emails to their customers

Shall I remember this for you?




Use your full name and a working email address. Unless you want your comment to be removed. No kidding.
