Any time you interact with a business, chances are you’ll end up handing over your email address. Whether you’re purchasing a product, signing up for a service, creating an account, that website will need a way to communicate important things to you.
These are legitimate reasons to collect an email, but over time a lot of these emails are not relevant for you anymore.
Often times, you don’t have a need for that service anymore, but you’ll still keep receiving updates, notifications, and marketing material from them. This creates a ton of inbox clutter.
Fortunately, if you want to stop receiving marketing communications from a business, U.S. law requires a way for consumers to easily opt out of conversations due to the CAN-SPAM act. Businesses include a footer at the bottom that gives you a way to opt out of any non-transactional emails.
For most of these types of emails, you should be able to scroll all the way to the bottom and you'll find a link to follow in order to stop receiving messages from that sender.

However, unsubscribing from email senders one by one can be a laborious process. A lot of users have reported opt-out processes that are extremely unfriendly for a user.
