Your contacts are able to manage their own subscriber status through the custom unsubscribe / opt-out links in broadcast and campaign sequence emails. When a contact clicks on the link, they are able to opt-out of all of your email marketing or just unsubscribe from one specific list. Occasionally, contacts may send you an email or call you with a request to remove them from your email marketing. If a contact wants to be removed from one specific list, but still wants to continue receiving other email marketing from you, you can remove the tag associated with that list (e.g. newsletter subscriber) to comply with their request. If you need to remove a contact or a list of contacts from ALL of your email marketing, then you will need to update their email status.
