Creating filters in Gmail

Gmail has a good solution to get rid of annoying emails by giving the facility to create filters for such mails. So you can avoid annoying mails coming in to your inbox or even you can automatically delete them. One other important thing, if you get mails from an unknown sender(not in your contact list) you can mark them as spam. So they will go to the spam section which will be automatically deleted after 30 days. Messages you've already marked as spam will never come in to your inbox unless you mark them as not spam.

Now let's see how we can create a filter for a certain mail. Just follow the steps given below.

1. select the wanted mail.
2. Under the "More Action" click on "Filter messages like these".
3. Click on the button "Next Step".
4. Select the actions you want to perform in your Filter(eg: if you want to delete the mail automatically you can select "Delete it") and click on "Create Filter" button.

That's all try this out and avoid unwanted mails coming to your inbox :)
