Yahoo! Mail Unsubscribe

For those Yahoo! Mail users who are tired of having to picking out important mails from a pile of less relevant messages, the official Yahoo! Mail blog has announced a new development. Yahoo! Mail and the Yahoo! Mail Application developer, OtherInbox (OIB), have brewed out the OIB Automatic Organizer application for conveniently unsubscribing from unwanted mailings lists.

The new addition sits on the lower left-hand corner of the Yahoo! Mail page. Users can simply direct commercial e-mail and social networking messages that they want to labeled folders such as OIB shopping, finance, and news. Creating an OIB Unsubscribe folder and dragging unwelcome e-mails to the said folder gets users unsubscribed from the listing automatically.

It may sound as simple as making that little coin do a disappearing act, but OIB’s still got to complete the task of unsubscribing from mail listings on behalf of the user behind the scenes. It does so with the help of a global e-mail compliance company called Lashback. Meanwhile, unwanted messages will continue wending their way to the OIB Unsubscribe folder until users have been unsubscribed from the mail listing.


  1. It is not working… The unsubscribe emails just sit in that box and nothing else happens. The crazy emails just keep coming

  2. I agree with Carol…and I started getting much more spam in my inbox AND my email contacts got a spam/virus email. Unsubscribe from the unsubscribe folder!!!

  3. I have over 3000 unread emails and I want to unsubscribe and I have tried to follow yahoo directions, but my password is refused and I am unable to understand the “audio.”

  4. All the crazy disclaimers from Yahoo and “3rd parties” scared me off. They are collecting marketing information people… to turn right around and blast you with personalized ads.

  5. Your unsubscribe does not work. After there dragged & dropped in unsubscribe they remain there and I keep getting the same emails over & over.

  6. My important emails go into trash. Even my emails from my contact list go into trash. You need to do something with your mail service as nothing works.

  7. I have moved over 30,000 unwanted emails into the unsubscribe folder and I keep getting emails from the same senders. It DOES not work.

  8. I agree . I keep getting e-mails from really ho&*^ women . these women are sick I cant figure out how to block this crap. there are to many . I cant figure out how it keeps growing . im like all of you im sick of it
