Everyone receives a lot of unwanted emails. Promotional emails form the bulk of these kind of emails. Most of them come from ecommerce websites. When you buy something online or book a flight ticket, you need to enter your email address and that is where the problem begins. Once you enter your email on a particular website, they will include your email address on their mailing lists. The end result is, you will be bombarded with promotional emails.
I used to receive around 30 unwanted emails in a day. The worst thing is that my important mails get buried under these junk mails. Even though gmail moves most such mails into promotions folder, some do creep into the important mails area . I am a person who likes to keep my inbox clean, so I was looking for a solution. You really can't stop entering your email address on ecommerce sites, but there is another way to get rid of those promotional emails.
Use Unsubscribe Option
The best way to get rid of unwanted emails is to unsubscribe from the mailing lists. Every promotional email will have an option to 'Unsubscribe' at the bottom of the mail. The unsubscribe option will be different on different mails. Some may look like this
In the beginning, you will have to unsubscribe manually on each and every email. But slowly the number of junk emails will reduce. Once you unsubscribe from the final junk mail, you can live a free life ever after.
