We all receive emails in our gmail inbox that we could happily have appear in a folder that we can check later and not our inbox.
The online shopping offers come to mind as an example.
First you need the email address that you would like filtered ( the term used to mean that the email will end up in a folder other than your inbox )
Open up a message that you want to filter and copy the email address on a text document
Open up mail settings which is in the top right hand corner of the gmail screen
Open up the labels tab
Create a new label – ” Online Shopping “
Then open filters and create a new filter
You can then apply the label to the filter you have created.
Also look at the other options such as delete it , which is especially useful if you have signed up to an email address that you get bombarded with.
