Take control of your Inbox

Inbox and Labels

1. Individually unsubscribe from stuff you absolutely don’t want, ever again, ever, ever. Commercial emails are required to include a “visible and operable unsubscribe mechanism” and honor opt-out requests within 10 business days.

2. Choose (or create) a unique email address for all of your commercial email, newsletters and similar accounts (i.e. not for work or personal communication). This means you have to check 2 or 3 accounts but it means some of them are much nicer than the others.

3. Manage the onslaught of emails from companies you need or want to hear from with a service like Unroll.me.

What is Unroll.me?

Unroll.me identifies your subscriptions and lets you decided how to receive them.

Rollup – a daily digest email of your subscriptions

In your inbox – same as before

Never – you can unsubscribe from a limited number of emails through Unroll.me. You’ll need to unsubscribe from most on your own.

Once you’ve organized your subscriptions, you will receive them in one convenient email from Unroll.me called “Daily Rollup”.
