Bulk delete of subscriptions
unsubscribing from subscriptions. It would be good to have the ability to unsubscribe from multiple subscriptions, especially when they were added through a junk email. Also, removing any subscription automatically that is linked to a junk email would be great.
Hey, thanks for your feedback!
You can already do this! Open the settings page by clicking on the gear in the header. Then search “subscriptions” in the settings pane search bar. Then click on “Subscriptions”, and it will show you a list of all the senders who you have a subscription to. (Please note: Microsoft does NOT sign you up for any of these subscriptions. We are just showing you which subscriptions you’ve been added to already, usually because you gave your email to a site online).
You can then unsubscribe from any of those emails using the subscriptions manager!
I was told that if I wanted Microsoft to make changes to come here!
By looking at the dates on the comments already made, Microsoft is ignoring what people are suggesting and Microsoft is doing nothing. What a shame.
If we really want changes, I guess we have to change mail providers!
Need a (select all button) to quickly high light and execute removal of multiple junk "subscriptions"
instead of one at time.
Can you please add a check box and select all option so I can remove myself from multiple Junk Email subscriptions?

I would like to delete ALL of the addresses in my Subscriptions folder all at once

I want to block unsolicited repetitive ads soliciting me for services which I will never need, or want. I am elderly. I am legally blind, and most often have to use a magnifying glass to read my mail. I resent the time I have to spend searching throught a list of ******** telling me how to have a super *******, or make dates with Asian women. I am 84 years old. I was successfully and happily BLOCKING all of these ads, and you have now, under the alleged cause of helping me remove alleged subscriptions to which I have never subscribed, removed from me the ability to BLOCK these aggravating people who are earning a living by simply emailing people without any consideration for the aggravation and inconvenience they cause. Kindly give me back my ability to BLOCK these people. I have been solicited for jobs, for surgery, for ***, for dating, for dogs, for politicians, for life, health, car, burial, and security "insurance." I am soon to die, and I don't like being reminded that, in America, you have to be dunned to death to buy something, literally.
PS: I can't read your extermely wordy
"Terms of Service Agreement." I accepted the terms anyway. It still will not allow me to post this. So I will try AGAIN. How anyone can respect this ridiculous inconvenience and the "DO IT, or else." attitude of modern communications, I don't know. This is a disgrace.
You CANNOT unsubscribe from most of these using the methods you have given us! I totally agree with JT below. First off, I have NOT subscribed to , or visited, the literally HUNDREDS of junk sites that you have let into my unwanted subscription folder!!
If I try to unsubscribe - here are some things that happen...
1. Clicking on unsubscribe will result in a message of "not found" or come back as "undeliverable", so there it stays.
2. Most times I click this option - my computer security system says it is RISKY and advises not to go there. So, I will not! Why should I have to visit a risky site that I never subscribed to, or visited, to get rid of it?? Sounds very unsafe to me.
3. IF I actually seem to be able to unsubscribe - say from "Canvas Prints"- guess what - I got 20 more subscriptions from them with slightly different addresses!
This is nuts! Don't tell us this unsubscribing works, as I have tried repeatedly to get rid of this junk and this is mostly what happens.
Also, I find it insulting that you seem to imply we are getting these as we have subscribed or visited these sites or given them our email! Most people on this forum will tell you this is NOT the case!
Problem not fixed! Get rid of entire subscription idea! What purpose does it serve???

> You can already do this! Open ...
No, you can't. You have do delete all the ****, one bogus email address at a time.
We need a checklist like in the Inbox where we can delete or block a whole group of spammers.
No, you CAN'T already do this- you have to unsubscribe from each 'subscription' individually - there is no bulk unsubscribing. Please carefully check that you know the details of the feature you are advising on, as this reflects rather poorly on Microsoft.
Even attempting to unsubscribe one by one is fairly pointless as these junk subscriptions do not generally track back to legitimate pages from which to unsubscribe. Secondly, they are controlled by bots that simply re-subscribe you if you use the block function. Microsoft has allowed anyone who knows or guesses a Microsoft email address to subscribe the user to any amount of junk emails they want, with no layer of security such as email verification before a subscription is confirmed or use of a password. I manually unsubscribed or blocked almost 100 junk emails the other day, only to find the list repopulated the very next morning.
Microsoft has created a spammers' charter with this subscription feature. At least help your customers to prevent themselves being signed up to unwanted mail by giving us some kind of function to review, confirm and/or delete 'subscriptions' in BULK - not one at a time.
Too hard. What's needed is a checkbox. Instead of redirecting to an unsubscribe page I was sent to a totally disgusting **** page.
What's needed is a checkbox so you can dump multiple lists simultaneously.

The spammers also shouldn't be able to self-add to subscriptions to begin with, also.

Lets get this corrected !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Many spammers know this weakenss so they keep sending,,,, with bogus 1st names.... then phishing U with attachments !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I assume that Microsoft must make money off of ****** websites or links being able to claim they have a "new subscriber". If not, a real programmer would have fixed this issue ages ago once they realized that all the **** going into their Junk Mail seems to get listed onto the Subscriber page.
Why do I have a subscription list and how do I block them?
Elreydelleon Fox commented
It's handy to have a subscription list to begin with to remove unwanted ones, but sometimes I am unable to remove them. Also, it'd be absolutely amazing if we could highlight multiple ones to remove all at once. This would make the process so much faster by eliminating having to wait for the list to reload every time one is removed. Even if it took an hour to finish, having this option would be worth the hassle of being tied down to remove subscriptions one by one.

How does spam/junk e-mails make their way into Subscriptions. I have very very few real e-mail subscriptions, yet Outlook.com shows that I have hundreds!! Most are spam e-mails, often repeated multiple times with spoofed return addresses. This is a serious bug and not a feature at all.
