Looking for help with your list?
Mailchimp lists are now called audiences. They include the same data and functionality as before, along with valuable new insights about your contacts. As we introduce this change over time, you’ll notice fewer places where we still say list. Learn more about this change.
Mailchimp is required to enforce spam laws. This means you must include an unsubscribe link in your email campaigns. A spotty unsubscribe process can impact deliverability rates, and we want to make sure your emails reach their recipients.
It's not just that an unsubscribe link is a requirement of the CAN-SPAM act. As a bulk delivery service, ISPs require us to manage your lists in a specific way, so we have to be able to:
- Handle and remove unsubscribes from your list automatically.
- Process bounce records.
- Report abuse and other information to ISP feedback loops. ISPs closely monitor how many unsubscribes occur. If an ISP sees too many, it can lead to deliverability issues for your account and other Mailchimp users accounts.
You can add our unsubscribe link to your campaign in the Campaign Builder and custom templates.
