For filters to function, they must be created in Gmail.

What can filters be used for?


You may subscribe to a mailing list that has good information but clutters your Inbox daily. You could create a filter that would direct this mail to a specific mail folder in your account where it can be reviewed later.

You can filter your incoming email messages to:

  • Sort them into labels
  • Archive them
  • Forward them
  • Discard them

Each filter rule consists of one or more conditions and one or more actions.
