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.
The Product updates and announcements email, previously been sent as a transnational email without the ability to unsubscribe, has been updated to be a promotional email with an unsubscribe link at the bottom. We apologize that it look so long, but we’re glad we were able to make it happen. Thanks for voting on this issue!
Still no unsubscribe link for me

This shows regulation so important. Otherwise it is difficult to get resolution for even the simplest of things if it doesn't help company's bottomline.
So, more than 4 years to be able to unsubscribe. MS only act forced by the EU or similar. Shame.
I have been extremely annoyed of getting spam email from Azure for a long time and I can see I am not the only one who is troubled by this issue.
This behaviour is against the law in European Union (General Data Protection Regulation), as it doesn't allow to withdraw our consent of willing to receive those emails.
In past months I have been in contact with Microsoft Azure support team and I have collected evidence for supporting this case at court. The team has promised me to solve this issue by the end September 2018.
If the problem is not solved until the deadline, I will start a formal process of reporting Microsoft to EU's Data Protection Authority.
I would like to use the time before the deadline for collecting information about other people affected by this issue, because clearly there is large number of us. If you would like to be either informed about the case, or part of the reporting process/lawsuit, send me an email to email@example.com
Still no Unsubscribe button!

If you feel this is in violation of GDPR for your case (e.g. particularly if you have no services any longer) then the contacts re: GDPR for each country in Europe can be found at:
Is this already fixed? There's still no "unsubscribe" link in the newslatter. Due to European Law you have to provide a way to stop this mailings, so please fix this.
Please help me with the subscription.

Poor Microsoft not respecting GDPR: should we attack them?
NO Skjoner jeg er svert intresert i nor artiklene komer so jeg for sete I gang med jobben min for no har jeg ventet so lenge kan dere igji meg en peke pin nor tids det komer
I agree with the previous comment. I am forced every 2 weeks to receive a useless newsletter for which I cannot unsubscribe. What a joke! A bad one.
To my opinion, this is a serious violation of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will be reinforced tomorrow, 25 May 2018, and basically states that I should have an easy way to unsubscribe from unwanted e-mails.
Privacy by default: meaning: simply stop e-mailing from now, fix the issue and make an option to actively enable (not disable) the concerned "Product and service updates" email subscription.

"Actively working to resolve the issue", Feb 14, 2018. Nearly 3 months later, still no unsubscribe link. Are you going to do something before May 24th?
I am an EU citizen and I shall be bringing up this misfeature of Azure under the GDPR legislation.
Have a nice day.
