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.

        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?

        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.

        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 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 SteeplesMatthew Steeples commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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).
