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.
Stop spamming with email announcements that we cannot unsubscribe.
I do not know what more to do to get rid of that messages...
"Azure HDInsight now queries Azure blobs faster and includes Apache HBase as a beta feature" is clearly marketing email. you shouldn't send it, or you should give me an easy way to opt out.
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?
I've been receiving a lot of spam from azure, gmail has become suspicious of them. I wonder whether it is actually from Microsoft. Spam reason was: "It has a from address in microsoft.com but has failed microsoft.com's required tests for authentication." I've also received 2 phone calls from South Korea to my mobile phone in Australia. This is super unprofessional if it is actually from MS. If so, you guys really need to get your **** together. And if not, you should try to do something about people operating under your name. Maybe provide an address to forward such spam for investigation by MS?
2 years later this is still going on.
more than 2 years receiving SPAM mails

Received another one of these SPAM POS's today. Seriously I have called and emailed at least a dozen people to turn this garbage off

None of the Azure emails have an unsubscribe mechanism, and so they are in violation of the CAN-SPAM Act in the United States.
Also, an Azure sales rep called my cell phone to try to get me on board. I'm less likely to choose Azure now.
Extremely annoying Microsoft does not have an unsubscribe link in their newsletters

Completely agree, at least you need to have some kind of subscription page where you can disable this. And add the link in the email you are sending with.

This issue should be fixed quickly! Very annoying!!!
They deliverately made it the most unaccessible feature. Haven't seen soemthing more hidden than that.
I'm keep getting these annoying azure pricing email!!!
I'm so sorry i tried their cloud service, I prefer any other cloud service - at least they provide unsubscribe button!!!!!!!!!
I keep getting getting Microsoft News all the time, I did not require it, please delete it from my Email. Regards Thomas Turner
This so frustrating. I deleted my azure account but yet I'm getting emails almost weekly about price and policy changes.
For the love of god, please make these emails configurable.
I've blocked them in my mail client, but that has the downside of not being great for service outage notifications.

Lowering the credit of your email announcements and giving us the only choice to filter your emails as spam is not an ideal strategy imho.
Matthew Steeples commented
The "excuse" is that the emails are notifying us of price changes which they are obliged to do by law. However the majority of these emails do not contain any pricing information, and are usually advertising new features (which in my eyes doesn't count as a change).
No unsubscribe? You are breaking a federal law in Australia: http://www.acma.gov.au/Industry/Marketers/Anti-Spam/Ensuring-you-dont-spam/mandatory-unsubscribe-ability-ensuring-you-dont-spam-i-acma
