Can I Unsubscribe People Via Email?

You can unsubscribe people from your AWeber autoresponder without logging in to your control panel.

Using this feature, you can also specify a category under which to classify each removal. This allows you use other parts of your account to generate reports detailing subscribers you've deleted.

Directions to Unsubscribe People Via Email

First, decide what email address you're going to send those remove requests from.

Then, choose "List Settings" under the "List Options" tab.



If the address you're looking to send unsubscribe requests from is already set as your "From Address", you do not need to add an additional address. The "From Address" is displayed at the top of the page, under the "Basic Information" section.



If it is not, you will need to add it under "Notifications", at the bottom of the page. Simply scroll down, enter the name and email address, then hit the "ADD" button.



Once you're done, hit the "Save Settings" button.

Note: If you add it as a "Notifications" email address, you will also receive messages at that address when you gain new subscribers, or when subscribers unsubscribe and leave you comments.

Finally, send a message to your AWeber unique list ID address (your uniquelistid@aweber.com) with the subject set to:

REMOVE#lead@email.com#category#list1,list2

  • "Lead@email.com" is the email address of the person you wish to unsubscribe from your list
  • "Category" is a category you wish to classify this removal under
  • "List1" and "list2" are the lists from which you wish to unsubscribe this address.

 

Examples:


To: uniquelistid@aweber.com
Subject: REMOVE#jack@frost.com#BUY

To: uniquelistid@aweber.com
Subject: REMOVE#john@doe.com#TEST

To: uniquelistid@aweber.com
Subject: REMOVE#fred@smith.net#PRODUCT1#uniquelistid

To: uniquelistid@aweber.com
Subject: REMOVE#joe@bob.com#PRODUCT2#uniquelistid1,uniquelistid2

Note: No confirmation of the removal is sent to the subscriber; the removal is silent. Using the word "REMOVE" must be capitalized for this to work.
