email subscribers expect to decide these things for themselves:

  • Whether to opt in to your program in the first place.

  • When, where, how and even whether they will read your email messages.

  • If and when they want to change preferences for content, format and frequency.

  • Whether to report your email as spam.

  • Whether to continue receiving your messages in email or find another channel that serves them better.

  • When to end the relationship and opt out.
