  • Help! My in-box is flooded. How do I unsubscribe again?

These lists are active, and some users find the amount of mail overwhelming. You can specify during sign-up to receive a single daily summary digest of list mail instead of every individual message.

Before you decide to unsubscribe, why not consider setting up mail filters in your email software. This way you can keep OSCAR list traffic separate from your other mail. There are some easy-to-follow online tutorials on how to do that in:


If you're on the main list and want to unsubscribe, just hit the blue button below. You'll be prompted to enter your email address. For the other lists the process for unsubscribing is the same as the process for subscribing. Go to the relevant link above that you used to subscribe to the specific mailing list in question.
