Unsubscribe from many mailing lists in one shot

DetoxBox is a browser extension that lets you unsubscribe from mailing lists that you never read with just two clicks. Archive or delete existing messages from these lists, leaving only important mail in your inbox.

If you're like me, you subscribe to hundreds of emailing lists when downloading free ebooks and watching free webinars. In addition, I'm having hundreds of error messages from my daytime job which I never have time to delete. My Updates tab currently has over 8 000 messages, and everything valuable is just lost there because I'm even scared to open it.

DetoxBox was built to address this issue. Unlike other services that offer solutions to this problem, mine is a browser extension so that you can be sure (and be able to verify) that your emails neve leave your browser.

The current version of DetoxBox lets you select lists to unsubscribe from and "click" unsubscription links for all of them, archiving or deleting the existing emails from these senders. My plans for v2 is to be able to bulk delete messages that you can't unsubscribe from, right from the message list. Another feature that will likely made it to v2 is automatic address approval -- the extension will watch for emails with confirmation links and "click" them -- so that you don't have to.

Would be happy to hear your comments.
