How many times do I have to unsubscribe from Bing and Microsoft?
How often do you click on the UNSUBSCRIBE link at the bottom of an unwanted email and how many time does the same email land in your mailbox again and again? Annoying isn’t it?
Recently I had the pleasure of buying (and returning) a Microsoft Surface Pro 3. I’ve had my Hotmail account since the year dot and have never really used it, so you can imagine my surprise when I logged into my account recently to check on my Surface Pro 3 order … my mailbox was filled to the brim with spam emails, mostly from Microsoft themselves.
Then a few days ago an email arrived advertising something on Bing. It looked like a newsletter of sorts. I clicked on the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email and a website loaded telling me to check the boxes to unsubscribe from everything (newsletters, rewards, general promotions etc).
Today I got a similar email in my mailbox from the same address and look at the word in blue. Yes its a freaking Newsletter, which I have already unsubscribed from, which means Bing and Microsoft do not validate their emails against their unsubscribe list or is it their list?
