I keep getting those PC Advisor newsletters. From 'Matt Egan, editor, PC Advisor [email protected]'. Don't want those so I click on 'Update your preferences' like the newsletter says when I want to unsubscribe. I go to my newsletters preferences page. All checkboxes are already unchecked. Nevertheless I click on 'Update'. But I keep getting those newsletters. Did that update procedure a few times, but the newsletters won't stop. What do I have to do to get rid of those newsletters??

Hi Jiggy,

I have found it impossible to unsubscribe from the newsletter.Have you managed to unsubscribe?

When you sign up they say "Our goal is to make the subscribe and unsubscribe process as smooth as possible, and as always, we welcome your feedback" which has not been my experience.

My feedback: PCAdvisor stop sending me emails I don't want.

Thread on same subject in tech helproom. As Al94 states the My Preference route doesn't currently work.

I've created a rule in my email client to automatically send any email from Matt Egan and his colleagues to "Deleted Items". This is a way around the issue with PC Advisor not doing what they say they will do.

Sound advice, mark as spam with google or your provider also if sufficient people do this it will eventually cause a response.

Unfortunately any e-mails you received that you have not asked for should be classed as spam.

No use clicking on the button that you want to unsuscribe as you still get them.

Unfortunately this has been going on for years and no doubt they have tried to fix it.

I still get the odd couple coming through but not as many as I used to so can manage what I get.

What I did was change my e-mail address just for PCA and I very seldom open it so that way it does not bother me that much.

Worth a try it is easy enough to open a new e-mail account.

Hi.

This should work via the Preference Centre. We'll check here, and if that doesn't work, as you suggest, we'll get it fixed.

Regards,

Simon

Has that not been available for years or have you modified it recently.

I think the problem is getting e-mails from users after you post a thread.

Now I do not want e-mails sent to me to tell me I have a new reply I can see that for myself.

Now can you stop those as well if you can.
