Making Gmail Manageable with Magic (& Unpack NEW Gmail)

Email is becoming increasingly unmanageable! 

There are many 'magical tricks' waiting for you to apply to gMail to make it more manageable and ensure you don't miss those important messages.  
  • Inbox Types ~ there are two inbox types I recommend.  I'll show you them and tell you when each one fits best.  
  • Themes ~ Changing your theme now and then can lift your spirits.
  • Labels ~ if you like to organize your mail you can create labels.  
  • Filters
    • Apply Label on specific incoming mail ~ I've got a green label called 'Paycheck & I've got a blue one called 'Mom' so all the messages from my mom are 'blue' and always collected in one 'folder.'    Once you know how to do this it can really help you identify important messages in your inbox and it is automatically done for you if you set up a FILTER.
    • Customized Inboxes ~ automatically apply a label and 'archive' to create custom/priority inboxes for mail such as 'payroll stubs', the tech updates; the school discussion forum, etc'
    • Automatically 'delete' unwanted incoming mail - if you have thousands of unread messages and you want to get rid of all of the 'newsletters, promotions' etc all at once from a particular sender you can search and delete.  However, you can run a filter to detect those incoming and auto-delete them and also delete all matching messages at the same time.   This can clean your inbox so fast!
Great for beginners, those never properly introduced to Gmail and anyone who desires 'inbox zero.'
