There might be nothing worse than an inbox full of mail that we don’t want. What’s more is it is very difficult to stop these emails once our address is captured by marketers. Although some of the major email providers have gone ahead and helped us out by shuffling marketing emails to other folders, sometimes stuff we want gets lost in the shuffle. We can now count on services that are designed to get rid of emails that we do not want, in perpetuity. “Unroll Me” is just one of those services. It is a third-party service that works with most mail providers and it is designed to make sure that our inboxes are only filled with things we want to see.
They way it works is there is an initial scan done after signing up for the service. This service then seeks to root out all of those addresses that seem to be from marketers. The email owner will then be provided with a list of those email addresses. It is at this time that any emails that are truly wanted can be earmarked by the email owner. Unlike most major email providers, this is going to allow those emails that have been mislabeled to be sent to the primary mailbox. This means that there will be no need to sift through several emails to fish out one that was wanted. There is also a “digest” that is provided to subscribers that shows a list of subscriptions that are making their way to your inbox every day.
These daily digests, which are also called “rollups,” will continue for quite being sent, on a daily basis, so as to be able to discern if a new service has started up. This comprehensive way of letting people know who is trying to email them daily is a great way to be sure the junk emails are being removed. The best part of the Unroll Me service is once you let them know that a subscription is unwanted, they will work to remove it so that those emails will stop arriving. In the end, Unroll Me can help email box owners have greater control over what they receive and it takes the “unsubscribe” work entirely off an email owner’s list of things to do.
