Automatically filter messages from specified senders
Let’s see how to filter email in Gmail automatically. You can also use filters to send messages from certain senders directly to certain labels (folders). For example, maybe I want to filter all messages from former employees so that the messages automatically enter certain labels. Here’s how to do it.
Start by opening your Gmail.
Display the Advanced Search box.
Click the arrow to the right of the Gmail search bar to display the Advanced Gmail search box.
When ready, click the link Create filter with this search.
Type the name of the sender of the message that you want to filter into the From column. You can be more specific to your filter by determining more information in other fields. After completing entering information, click the link Create filter with this search. The Create filter box appears.
Select an option and click the Create filter button.
This box asks what you want to do with each message that meets the criteria that you set in the Advanced Gmail search box.
Note that some options, such as Delete it and Skip the Inbox, will keep these messages outside of your Gmail inbox. The Delete it option in particular, will save unwanted messages from the sender out of your Spam inbox and folder.
This time we will choose to send the message specified to the label that I made which is called the Former Employees.
Check the box next to the Apply the label option. Click the arrow in the Choose label box. The drop-down menu displays available labels.
Select label. Click the Create filter button to create a filter that manages unwanted messages from your inbox.
Click the label where you want to submit messages from certain senders, in this case the Former Employees. Click Create filter to create a filter. A message is displayed at the top of your inbox by saying Your Filter was created. Learn more.
All messages from specified (specific) senders will now be labeled and easily seen. Use the Move To icon (like a folder) to delete this message from the Primary tab so you don’t need to see it.
