Add a customized unsubscribe link

In order to comply with our acceptable use policy, you must include an unsubscribe link in your emails. You can learn more about email permissions in the FAQ. You can customize the text, position, size and color of the unsubscribe link in each of your emails. However, you must ensure it is clear and conspicuous.

If you don't add a customized unsubscribe link, Autopilot will automatically add an unsubscribe link at the bottom of your emails.
