Create A Filter At Gmail

Got a lot of email messages from various senders often make us confused to read it. Especially those of us who join the group or social networking site which [by default] always sends email notification to us.

This tutorial will show you how to create a filter and make your email account easily managed and not all email received mixed in one inbox folder.

Step 3:

You will be asked about how your filter works. There many option/criteria to filter emails. You must specify the criteria that will be used to determine what to do with a message as it arrive. In this tutorial, I will make a filter for messages which have sent by Facebook.

Step 4:

Now, you should select the action you’d like to take on messages that match the criteria you specified, in this case you will be asked, “What you’d like to do with messages that sent by Facebook..?”. If you have the answer, “I want the message saved on specified folder and not appear in inbox folder”, then you should check Skip the Inbox and Apply the label.
