Updated: The Skinny on [MARKETING] Emails

You may have noticed that emails with a “Marketing” label attached to the subject line have started to appear in your inbox in greater numbers. 

The label is applied by our email filter. This category had been blocked, but we’ve found that this has blocked email from professional organizations, vendors, and some parents who correspond using work email accounts.

David Caviness on the MISD Network Team explains, “These emails are not the same as spam. Spam is unsolicited, whereas these messages have been requested, either directly through becoming a member of an email list or indirectly through providing an e-mail address and other information to organizations that then share that info with these companies.”

If you begin to receive too many emails, you may use your junk mail filter within Outlook to cut down on the number that you receive.

    I have tried to “unsubscribe” to a couple of these and it doesn’t ever seem to work. Is there a secret to that?

    • Hi Karen! It depends on the list that you’re attempting to get off of; some less reputable firms just use the “unsubscribe” function to verify that someone actually read the email instead of delisting you. You may want to try sending them to your junk mail folder using these directions. Please give us a call at 4357 if we can help you.
