If someone unsubscribes in the middle of the flow will they receive any further emails from the flow?

Hi Everyone,

I may be losing my mind but I just need some reassurance.  I am pretty positive someone will not receive further emails.

Question:

If someone unsubscribes in the middle of the flow will they receive any further emails from the flow?  Lets say a flow sends out two emails and after the first email send the lead unsubscribes.  Will they receive the second email?  In other words does Marketo check to see if they are unsubscribed all the time or just at the start of the flow?

Thanks ahead of time!

Hi Nate,

Indeed, Marketo checks unsubscribes each time you run a "send email" flow step. So of the remaining emails in the flow are not operational emails, the leads who unsubscribed in the middle of a flow will not receive remaining emails.

Hi again Nate,

Please pay attention that Marketo may not control the unsubscribe in 2 situations:

  • If the next emails are operational
  • If someone unchecked the "block non-operational emails" in the qualification rules:
