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.
Thank you everyone for your feedback. The email in question is called "Product and service updates” that is sent every two weeks. While it does not currently have an unsubscribe link, the team is
actively working to resolve the issue. Thank you for your patience.
So I found a work around, if you reply to the email, you get an auto generated email back which has a link to a web form, which allows you to request another link which gives you control over communications!

Wow. You suck. How does this not violate the CAN-SPAM act? And don't thank me for my patience, because I have none.
seriously how is this not spam mail!

Azure is the ONLY emails I get that do NOT have unsubscribe. I am now marking them as spam. STOP
Forward them onto the FCC

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.

https://profile.microsoft.com/ContactPreferences/securepages/eeeselfservice.aspx?LCID=1033 link does NOT offer or succeed in halting Azure emails.
Extra bonus: Writing this comment seems to open me to MORE spam. Goody

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.
This is even illegal!

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.
After get the link from your emain, open it and click on all the ticks and click save! Tested and working 100%
Forward unwanted or deceptive messages to:
the Federal Trade Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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

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.
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!
