Email/Unsubscribing another person's subscription - This is not an Outlook Q



I did try to search for this question and answer, but I could not think of good key words to search for.

A friend forwarded an e-mail to me that included a link that I think would unsubscribe him from the service that sent the e-mail.  I am his friend, and will not click the link.   But maybe somebody else will!  Should I tell my friend to remove those kinds of links before he forwards them?

Thank you for your help!

Hello John!

Thanks for your question!

Indeed you shoudl tell your friend to always remove those links because nobody is as trustworthy as you are and suddenly he would find himself unsubscribed because somebody clicked on the link.

All the  best and hope this helps!

I did an education as a Management Assistant in Informatics, I am using the Opera browser since year 2000 & the M2 email client since 2004. I will do my best to answer also other email related questions and email client settings related, etc. But please no Outlook or Outlook Express questions, since I do not use that. (But if you really want to ask in that field, I will sure do try my best to answer your question nicely and correctly anyway :) ). This includes but is not limited to web based email or whatever comes to your mind.


I am a Management Assistant in Informatics education which was done under the control of the CCI (Chamber of Commerce and Industry). And had to solve various PC, email and other related problems. Using computers since 1990.
