How to unsubscribe an email from only one list

So I've made an autoresponder series that is trying to sell a product. I want to prevent the people that already bought the product to receive further emails from that specific series.
It is okay if its done manually because it is a small business.

I see that you can't remove an email from being "queued" in the autoresponder series.
I tried to change the permission to "temporarily hold" or "unsubscribe" but that disables the account from receiving any email from me.
All these look like workarounds and not actual fixes.
Is there an actual fix?
Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks in advance

Re: How to unsubscribe an email from only one list

Hi @FirstNameL59184,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us through the Community. It is possible for you to remove the contact from a particular list. To do this, go to the Contacts page by clicking on the Contacts tab located at the top of the navigation toolbar. On that page, check the checkbox next to the name of the contacts you want to remove from a particular list. Then, at the top of the columns, click on Manage Lists. Then select the Remove from Lists option and you will be asked which list you wish to remove the contact from. For more information on this, please click here. Once the contact is removed from that list, the autoresponder email will not send to them since the contact needs to be within the list in first place in order for the autoresponder to go out to them. I hope this helps. Let us know if you need assistance with anything else.

Thank you @lucas_d for your reply.
I had tried removing the contact from the list but it seems that the name is still "queued" in the email queue within the autoresponder series.

Re: How to unsubscribe an email from only one list

Hello @FirstNameL59184,

 

Thank you for reaching back out to us with this information. I can definitely understand how important it is for you to be sure that the contact does not receive the email they are queued for. After further reviewing with my upper level of support I have verified that the system upon sending, it will double check the listing that the Autoresponder is connected to and will only send to the contacts included in the list at the time of the send. The contact will still show as a queued contact, but the system will recognize that the specific contact is no longer in the list and it will not send to them. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused. I will be submitting this feedback to the correct team for future references, for investigating purposes. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist with today.

Re: How to unsubscribe an email from only one list

Follow this simple steps to unsubscribe a mail for a mailing list:
1. Open a message from the mailing list or newsletter.
2. Click or tap the Unsubscribe link next to the sender's name or email address. You can find this at the top of the message.
3. There might instead be a Change preferences link that will let you alter how the subscription emails are sent to you, but most emails don't have this.
4. When you see the Unsubscribe message, choose the Unsubscribe button.

You may have to complete the unsubscription process at the sender's website.

Hello @user3559,

 

We actually make it even easier for your contacts to Unsubscribe! All they have to do is click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email that is sent through Constant Contact. If you have any questions about how that process works, please let us know!
