UK mailing list regulations.
Regulations regarding the use of mailing lists in the UK require the following:


Unsubscribe functions are a legal requirement.

Ethical e-mail promotions will have a clearly defined unsubscribe function, enabling recipients to be removed from a mailing list with minimal effort. This requires no more than two clicks; one from the e-mail to the unsubscribe landing page, which should then automatically populate a form with the recipient's details, ready for submission.

Is there a URL that can be entered into GT newsletters to allow unsubscribe to function in this manner?

Thanks in advance for your help
