What is Unroll.me?

Unroll.me is the easiest way to manage your inbox. Unsubscribe from unwanted email subscriptions, discover new ones and organize them all in one place.

What email clients do you support?

Why can't I log in? (Gmail Only)

There are a couple of reasons you may not be able to log in to your account:

  1. You have not selected "Show in IMAP" in your Gmail settings.

How do I block my personal contacts from emailing me?

What happens when I block a contact?

We'll pull up a list of your recent contacts. If you want to block someone, just select their email address and click "Block." They won't know you blocked them — their emails won't bounce, they won't get a notification, nothing. They can send as many emails as they want, but you don't have to see them. Want to check your blocked emails? No problem. Access them in your Blocked folder. You can block someone anytime. If a month from now you get an email from someone you don't want contacting you, just come back to Unroll.me, pull up your contacts list (it updates live) and add them to your Blocked folder. Bam. You can unblock any blocked contacts anytime at Unroll.me.

Why does Unroll.me request access to my contacts?

Unroll.me requests access to your contacts to make sure that you receive your Rollup email in your inbox and not in your spam filter.

Does Unroll.me store my login information?

Unroll.me takes its users privacy and security extremely seriously. We prefer not to have access to your login information. Whenever possible Unroll.me uses authentication services, such as Gmail's OAuth, to access its users data. However if authentication is not available in another form, Unroll.me takes exceptional care to protect the user login information it does have access to. In short, if you have a Gmail or Outlook.com account, we never have access to your login info. If you have a Yahoo, AOL, or iCloud account, we do. We're hoping these services release a public version of OAuth soon.

Why is my email client warning me of somebody using IMAP from another location?

We use IMAP as our connection to your mailbox — no need to worry!

How does Unroll.me access my email account?

To login, we use OAuth for the services that support it. For the others, we securely encrypt your password. To connect to your account, we use IMAP for all services.

What is the Rollup?

What happens to subscriptions that I add to my Rollup?

The subscriptions you include in your Rollup will no longer be sent to your inbox. Rather, they are moved to the “Unroll.me” folder in your email client and can be found there at any time.

Why did I not get my Rollup today?

You will not get your Rollup on days that you didn't receive any email subscriptions.
