This tutorial explains how to bulk export unsubscribe link from newsletters in Gmail. Unsubscan is a free open-source command line tool that takes email folder from you and then extracts all the unsubscribe links from all the emails that it finds. It consolidates those links in a single HTML file and then you can unsubscribe from multiple newsletters or promotion emails from one place.
The HTML file containing all the unsubscribed links also groups links from the same domain. And if you have knowledge of programming then you can create an automation script to click on those links automatically. Apart from Windows, Unsubscan is available for macOS and Linux as well. The process is the same as you just need EML files corresponding to all the emails in your account.
To convert all the emails in your account, you can make use of Thunderbird email client. Or, if you use Gmail then you can download Gmail emails as EML files using the web interface easily.
