2. In the drop down menu, click on “See All Options…”

3. Click on “Groups” located in the leftmost menu

4. Two lists will appear. “Public Groups I Belong To” contains all of your public groups

5. To leave a group, highlight it in the list by clicking on it

6. Then, click the "Leave" the icon

7. A dialog box will appear. Choose “Yes”

8. Repeat the previous steps for all other groups you want to leave. Once done, you can return to your inbox by clicking on “Mail” or “My Mail”
