How to Unsubscribe From Newsletters in – Guiding Tech

Stack Of Emails

For the past few weeks I have been using my account as my default email address. The

clean interface, minimalistic approach

and few more innovative new features were enough to lure me away from Gmail. In the process of making my default email address I accidentally subscribed to many newsletters and promotional updates.

Now while trying the Sweep email feature of, I stumbled upon an amazing feature using which one can automatically unsubscribe from unwanted newsletters right from inbox. We have already seen how automatically filters emails as Group, Newsletters, Social Updates, etc. Today we will put the feature to use for a cleaner inbox.

Unsubscribing from Newsletters

Step 1: Open your Inbox and click on the View drop down control to select Newsletters option. will filter all the newsletters that are in your Inbox and hide rest of the emails.


Step 2: Now highlight and select the newsletters you would like to unsubscribe from. If you have many emails from the same sender, no need to select all of them, just one will do. After selecting the newsletter, click on the option Sweep on the toolbar and select the option Unsubscribe from the drop down toolbar.

Step 3: will try to unsubscribe you from the senders mailing list but as it might take time, it will filter all future emails from the sender and forward it to junk. In the process you can delete all the previous newsletters from the sender and clean your inbox.

Stop Emails

That’s all, you will be unsubscribed from the list eventually and will no longer receive newsletters and promotional emails from the particular sender. You can use the option to Sweep inbox and initiate a schedule cleanup in your inbox as well.


I have to admit that I miss the feature of Priority Inbox of Gmail when it comes to sorting emails, still Sweep inbox helps to a great extent. Automatic categorization as newsletters and the ability to unsubscribe from them without leaving the interface is nice to have.
