How to Use Gmail Filters to Automatically Delete Unwanted Email

Geek Tip: Auto-Delete Email From Specific Senders in Gmail

I love how many Gmail tricks there are — especially the one that automatically deletes messages from specific senders before they reach your inbox. For the last month or so my inbox has been overflowing with junk mail and spam. And while I didn't want to close my account, I was getting sick of weeding out 30+ unsolicited emails a day from the ones that mattered. My friend told me about an easy filtering trick that she was using to avoid emails from her ex-boyfriend, which totally works for spammy messages as well. Find out what it is when you read more.

If you need certain emails to disappear like we did, it's really easy to do: when you have the email opened, choose the "Filter messages like these" option under the "More actions" toolbar. From there, choose what you'd like Gmail to do with it — whether that means archiving, deleting, or forwarding the message, it's up to you. Since I wanted to put an end to getting all this junk mail (there was no option to unsubscribe to these messages, BTW), I chose "delete." Since then, my Gmail inbox has been looking quite tidy! And now my friend can get through her workday without the fear that an email is going to show up in her inbox from her stalker ex. Sometimes, out of sight really equals out of mind!
