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.

        The email I got now has an unsubscribe link, but clicking on it says "The link to unsubscribe from receiving Microsoft Azure email notifications is expired. ..... is currently subscribed for receiving Microsoft Azure email notifications."

        I found this thread after signing up for a new Azure account and seeing that I had *no choice* but to allow Microsoft to both email and call me about Azure marketing matters. This is ridiculous.

        This is one of the few e-mails I have not been able to unsubscribe to. Not sure why this is so difficult.

        Very aggravating, these Azure messages are very annoying I want an easy opt out...
        I shouldn't have to log in to an account that the user doesn't know exist, They have know Idea where these Azure messages are coming from?
        I VOTE OPT-OUT Button!!!!

        Congratulations, Microsoft. Your abusive, illegal spamming has guaranteed I will never use or recommend Azure.

        Report Spam

        Forward unwanted or deceptive messages to:

        the Federal Trade Commission at spam@uce.gov. Be sure to include the complete spam email.
        your email provider. At the top of the message, state that you're complaining about being spammed. Some email services have buttons that allow you to mark messages as junk mail or report them spam.
        the sender's email provider, if you can tell who it is. Most web mail providers and ISPs want to cut off spammers who abuse their system. Again, make sure to include the entire spam email and say that you're complaining about spam.

        If you try to unsubscribe from an email list and your request is not honored, file a complaint with the FTC
        https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0038-spam

        I tried out Azure for a few minutes a year or so ago. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to stop receiving these mostly marketing emails about price changes and such. This is not okay.

      • ColinC commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, after 2 weeks of investigation my Microsoft representative confirm the only way to stop receiving Azure emails was to unsubscribe from all MS communication. I did this and received another Azure email the same day.

        MICROSOFT THIS IS ILLEGAL SPAM - STOP THIS IMMEDIATELY!

      • Madge Johnson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I had to spend an hour on chat with Microsoft.com about this. You can't just filter it because they send you email from every product in their line! Bing! Office! You name it, they'll spam you with it. The representative literally didn't believe me that it's impossible to unsubscribe. I thought my head would explode. Way to get people to love your brand, Bill Gates. Not.

        Every email I get because I'm a member of a Microsoft Partner organisation or because I once signed up to the Windows Insider program or any other reason that I didn't request that I can't switch off anywhere and doesn't have an unsubscribe facility I'm forwarding to the Australian Communications and Media Authority. For anyone else living in Australia I encourage you to do the same: report@submit.spam.acma.gov.au.

        It's a legal requirement for companies doing business in Australia to have an unsubscribe function: http://www.acma.gov.au/Industry/Marketers/Anti-Spam/Ensuring-you-dont-spam/mandatory-unsubscribe-ability-ensuring-you-dont-spam-i-acma. What Microsoft is doing is illegal.

        I've tried repeatedly to get myself removed from their mailing list for several years now but to no avail. They completely ignore all unsubscribe requests. They're just cheap spammers now, they know it, but they just don't care. What we're witnessing here is one small example of how Microsoft is working hard to drive their customers away and ensure they have no future.

      • X commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        They're doing it on purpose. They no longer care about their customers. Microsoft is a bully.

      • Torsten commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yeah, this is so f...ing annoying. I even opened a ticket a MS for it, and some indian guy showed me several places where to unsubscribe from MS newsletters. I deactivated everything and I still keep getting this damned pricing newsletter!

        We don't care about pricing services and updates. Please all us to remove ourselves.
