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:

1gmail

 

 

Log into your Gmail account.  Click the “gear” icon on the right hand side and click “Settings”

 

 

 

 

2gmail

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 kedwards@richmond.edu).  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.
