Cut your email volume in half with Unroll.me

by | Dec 10, 2013 | Technology

After a large privacy violation, where Unroll.me was caught selling users email data to companies like Uber, I can no longer recommend this service.


If you’re like me, it’s hard to keep your head above water when it comes to email. Between notifications from Facebook and newsletters you signed up for (and ones you didn’t), you might find yourself doing more dirty work with your email inbox than actually reading and responding to emails.

Enter Unroll.me. After you sign up for Unroll.me, the service scans your email inbox for any subscription emails you’re signed up for, and then allows you to do one of two things: unsubscribe from them, or roll the email up into a single, daily email that Unroll.me will send you.

Every day Unroll.me will send you one email that contains the new emails from every single subscription you’re signed up for, like the one I received the other day, which saved me from 13 emails:

Unroll.me will also watch out for any new subscription emails you receive, and offer to roll those up for you the next time around.

The service works with Gmail, Yahoo, and Outlook.com accounts, and it’s totally free. I’ve been using it for a week, and couldn’t recommend it more. Give it a shot!
