Did you know that you can automatically move some email directly into a folder without having to manage it within your inbox? Would you prefer to move, say, emails from Kim Edwards out of your inbox and into a separate folder? Although we may not be able opt out of receiving those emails, we can decide how to manage them once we receive them.
To create a filter in Gmail:
Log into your Gmail account. Click the “gear” icon on the right hand side and click “Settings”
Click the “Filters and Blocked Addresses” tab and then click “Create a new filter”
In the “Filter From” field, type the email address you would like to filter. For demonstration purposes, we will filter Kim Edwards (email address is email@example.com). Click “Create filter with this search.”
Check the box that says “Apply the label:” and click the drop down menu beside it. Click “New Label” and type “Spiderbytes”. Click “Create filter.”
You can edit or delete the filter at any time.
