Leaving /Unsubscribing From a Group

 You can stop receiving emails from a group by either leaving/unsubscribing the group, or changing your settings. If you unsubscribe from a group, you'll no longer be a member, and you'll stop receiving emails and lose the ability to view group messages. If you'd like to stay a member, but stop receiving emails, just change your email settings. 

Leave/Unsubscribe

You can Leave/Unsubscribe from a group using any of these steps:

  • Option 1: Reply to an email from the group with REMOVE ME as the subject of your message.

  • Option 2: Send an email to groupname+unsubscribe@appstate.edu. For example, if you want to leave the group “myfriends@appstate.edu,” you can remove yourself by sending a blank email to myfriends+unsubscribe@appstate.edu.

  • Option 3: Send a blank email (no text in the body of the message) with the subject line: "Unsubscribe" to the group's email address

  • Option 4: Edit your settings.

  1. Open Google Groups.

  2. Click My Groups > name of the group you want to edit.

  3. In the upper-right corner, click My Settings > Leave this group

Note: You can unsubscribe from most University Google Groups.  However, some groups are “no-opt-out” groups and University personnel and students may be subscribed to the group without their permission.  

Change your Email Settings

You can adjust your settings to receive group communications the way you prefer.  For example, you can be part of a group, but choose not to receive any email from the group.

  1. Open Google Groups.
  2. Click My Groups > name of the group you want to unsubscribe from.

  3. In the upper-right corner, click My Settings > Membership and email settings.
