And, all of this service does not come for free. Some of the service providers ask you if you would like to sign up for a newsletter, while most won’t. And you get unwanted notifications, the newsletter that ends up taking up your entire inbox. However, you have that ability, that power to stop that from happening with just a click on Yahoo Mail; “Unsubscribing newsletter.” So, today, I have come up with a guide that will help you to unsubscribe newsletter in Yahoo Mail.

In this article, I have described six different ways to get rid of the unwanted newsletters in Yahoo Mail. Five of which requires you to unsubscribe, while one is grouping all the newsletter in one filter so that your inbox in free from any newsletter.

Method 1: Unsubscribe Newsletter in Yahoo Mail

Whenever an organization or a service-oriented company send you a newsletter, its compulsory for them to add an unsubscribe link or button on their email.

Unsubscribe Newsletter in Yahoo Mail

And, this method is best when you got the newsletter and want to unsubscribe to that newsletter at the same time.

  1. First, open your browser and go to Yahoo’s official site.
  2. Now to login to Yahoo mail click on “sign-in icon” on the upper right corner of your window
  3. On the sign in page, enter your email address in the email address text box and click the next button. [ you can exclude @yahoo.com, just type in your username. For example, if your email address is [email protected] then you can just type abxyz in the email address textbox]
  4. Now enter your password in the password textbox and click the next button. If your email address and password are matched, you will be directed to your yahoo home page
  5. From the Yahoo homepage, click the mail icon from the upper right corner of your screen. This will take you to your Yahoo mailbox
  6. From the list of the mail on the inbox area, open the newsletter that you want to unsubscribe.
  7. One pro tip: the service provider company that sent you an email to promote a product need to have an unsubscribe button in their email. Most of the time, the unsubscribe link or the button is at the end of the email in the footer area of the email. Once you find an unsubscribe link or the button, click it.
  8. Clicking the unsubscribe link will open up a new Window dialogue box which will ask you if you are sure you want to unsubscribe.
  9. Finally, click the yes button to unsubscribe the newsletter.
  10. In some cases, you will need to visit the email senders’ site to unsubscribe to their newsletter. So visit this site without any hesitation and unsubscribe.
  11. Likewise, some spam message doesn’t contain an unsubscribe link in their emails. So, in such cases, go through the email and make sure if it is a spam message. You have three choices for these kinds of emails. You can delete the email in Yahoo Mail, or you can send the email to the spam folder to restrict theme messages to come up on your inbox; Or block those emails; if you block the email in Yahoo Mail, then the person or the organization won’t be able to send you any further message.

Method 2: Find Newsletter in Bulk and Unsubscribe

the second method in my list for the unsubscribing newsletter is searching for the newsletter and unsubscribing them one by one

  1. Login to Yahoo mail and go to the mailbox area clicking the mail icon.
  2. On the navigation bar of your mailbox, there is a search box you can search any emails if you have the keyword. And in our case keyword is unsubscribe. This is because all the service-oriented company needs to include an unsubscribe link or a button in their email. So if we search and subscribe keyword in the search box, the search result will display only those email that has on subscribe keyword in their email.
  3. In Yahoo Mail, you cannot select all the newsletters and unsubscribe them at once. So you will need to manually open the email one by one and click the answer Scribe button that is on the foot of the email.
  4. If you need the shortcut, click the email and open it in a new tab. This way, you will not have to load each and every email in the same page back and forth.

Method 3: Using Third-party App To Unsubscribe Emails in Bulk

Since Yahoo does not provide you an option to unsubscribe the newsletter at once, we can use a third-party app that is created for this reason. Today we are using unroll.me to unsubscribe bulk email newsletter.

Using Third-party App To Unsubscribe in Bulk

To unsubscribe newsletter in bulk using unroll.me, first you will need to create an account in unroll.me. Let’s get started.

  1. Go to unroll.me website and click the button get started now.

The best part of Unroll.me is that it keeps a record of all the newsletters you unsubscribed. And, you can subscribe theme back any time you like with just a click.

Method 4: Unsubscribe Using Yahoo Mail App

In today’s generation, we often use mobile phones than traditional desktop or laptop computers for our day to day activities. So, most of the popular webmail service providers have created their mobile applications so that it would be readily available at the user’s fingertip. Likewise, yahoo mail also has its own Yahoo Mail app through which one can send or view emails, block someone or unsubscribe newsletter too.

Here is how to unsubscribe the newsletter in the Yahoo Mail App.

  1. Launch your Yahoo Mail app. If you haven’t installed the yahoo app on your mobile, do it today, or you will moss so many features that are available at your fingertip.

Method 6: How to Filter Newsletter in Yahoo Mail
