Please note that the addresses that you wish to unsubscribe can be listed in any format, even if found throughout extra text. For instance, let's say that you've received the following message from one of your subscribers:


Dear Sir,

I, (me@example.com), am no longer in the market for a widget. Please stop sending widget-promoting emails to myself@wantawidget.com.

Sam Subscriber
andi@example.com



You can copy that whole message, paste it into the Addresses to Unsubscribe text box, and click the Unsubscribe button. We'll remove all of the email addresses mentioned in the message from your autoresponder, including:

me@example.com
myself@example.com
andi@example.com
