Label and sort messages with filters

" "


Manage incoming messages automatically with Gmail’s filters.


  • Automatically apply labels to categorize incoming messages, such as customer feedback or project-related messages.
  • Getting messages you don’t need right now, like forum posts or newsletters? Let Gmail automatically archive them so you can keep a clean inbox and read them later.
  • Flag VIP emails.
  • Archive notifications.

For tips on applying common filters, see Gmail filter ideas.
