Allow e-mail unsubscribe
I have received three e-mails in one day from azure. One about downtime (I have no services right now), and two advertising features. None of these e-mails have unsubscribe buttons, and I cannot find a way to suppress them in the account page. All contact checkboxes are un-checked.
I don't really want your emails. Other sites take the hint and offer a way to unsubscribe. Microsoft has chosen not to. Take, for example, your latest email on pricing. I don't have any active subscriptions, and after the free trial I don't want any active subscriptions. So I don't want offers from you. I don't want the latest news about Azure from you. I don't want any emails form you. So why don't you give me a way to stop you sending me drivel that only makes me resent you and your brand?
UNSUBSCRIBE link goddammit!
Upvoting this. Also adding all Azure emails to spam filter. Please fix this ASAP.

I have started marking them as spam due to the lack of unsubscribe.
This should not even have to be requested in the first place. Microsoft is a billion dollar tech company, and they ought to have known that putting an unsubscribe link in marketing emails is a basic rule of mass emailing.
Hi Anonymous and others with this situation. You should be able to sign in to the https://account.windowsazure.com/Profile with the account that is getting all the emails and select the appropriate Communication Preferences on the right side. It would be helpful if there was an unsubscribe link in the emails, but the option to disable them does exist. I have found that it is possible to connect to your azure management portal even if you have an inactive or an expired subscription. Hope this helps.
