Unsubscribe from their mailing list:
There is usually an unsubscribe button at the bottom of the email. If you don’t want to hear from them again in future click on the unsubscribe button. You may be asked to fill more information like why you want to unsubscribe. You may also see multiple choice option or drop-down to choose an exact reason to unsubscribe.
If you don’t see any unsubscribe button then you must mark it as spam.
Keep the following in things in your mind if you want to avoid spam in future.
- Never reply to the senders you don’t know.
- Never leave your email address to forums. Be careful with whom you share your personal email address.
- Don’t reply to the email which warns that subscription will be removed.
- Never sign-up with that website who claims to remove your email address from spam list as most of them are the real culprits. Instead of the legitimate organization, they are the address collector used by the spammers.
