Newsletters that you’ve subscribed to can quickly clutter up your inbox. One of the cool features of Outlook.com is it lets you easily unsubscribe to the ones you no longer want – without going through an arduous unsubscribe process.
Outlook.com will automatically categorize newsletters for you. This lets you find them quickly and delete the ones you don’t want to read. For instance, here’s one I get from Hulu Plus. Notice it’s categorized as newsletters – this is done automatically based on the sender address, I didn’t have to mark it manually.
Just click View at the top and select Newsletters to bring up all of the newsletter emails in your inbox.
Outlook.com will unsubscribe you from newsletters on your behalf with a few clicks. Highlight the newsletter, click Sweep and click Unsubscribe from the menu.
A message comes up verifying you want to stop getting the newsletter. You can also check the option to delete all of the other newsletters from your Inbox.
A confirmation message is then displayed at the bottom of your Inbox.
Since I’ve been using Outlook.com, it has doine a great job at categorizing newsletters correctly, but it isn’t always perfect. If you get a newsletter or any message that’s categorized incorrectly it’s easy to change it.
