Automatically deleted unwanted emails

It is a common scenario with all of us, that in some point in time we might have subscribed for certain newsletters or some advertisements, some might be spam emails or some emails which we might have not even registered for. These emails flood our email account and have become a nuisance.

Though you might have unsubscribed for these alerts, you still might automatically get emails in your inbox. To get rid of these emails, you can get gmail to delete those emails automatically from your mailing list by setting up a fiter.

Here’s how you can set up the filter

Step 1: Click on the settings button on the right-hand corner of the page.

Step 2: Click on the Filters tab.

Step 3: Click on “Create new filter” on the bottom of the page.

Step 4: In the next screen, tell Gmail how to identify the messages. If it always comes from the same email address use that. If it always uses the same subject line, use that. You can also have Gmail search the message for specific words, such as “cobone deals.”

Step 5: Click on “Create filter with this search.”
