I suggest you ...

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.

        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.

        Dear community,

        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 microsoft.spam.community@gmail.com

        Best regards,
        Filip

        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.

        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?

        Hello Microsoft,

        I am an EU citizen and I shall be bringing up this misfeature of Azure under the GDPR legislation.

        Have a nice day.
