Leave or unsubscribe from a group

Need to leave a group or unsubscribe for one reason or another? Unsubscribing is quick and painless.

Leaving a group

  1. On your group's main page, click Membership | Edit Membership.
  2. Click Leave Group.
  3. Click Leave.

Keep in mind: If you're the group’s only owner, you'll need to first transfer ownership to another member before you can step down.

Unsubscribing from a group's mailing list

  Important: To use this command, you'll need to be a member of, or subscribed to the group you're emailing.

  1. Send a blank message from your subscribed email address to groupname-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com
    Note: Replace "groupname" with the exact name of the group you want to leave.
    -You'll be sent a confirmation email
  2. Respond to the confirmation email in order to unsubscribe.
    Note: If you don't see the confirmation email, it may have been delivered to your spam folder.

  Tip: If you're just overwhelmed by too many email messages, you can always change your email delivery preferences instead of leaving a group.
