Train Gmail's Priority Inbox

Geek Tip: Train Your Gmail Priority Inbox

With the introduction of Google's priority inbox, you can now see your most important emails first, while the rest of your lesser-important emails get filtered into your regular inbox. However, if you're finding that not-so-important messages are finding their way into the "priority" section (or important emails are landing in your regular ol' inbox), then train Gmail to recognize these differences by using the plus or minus signs in each email to determine where emails should go.

Each time you "train" Gmail by telling it "this is important" or "not important," it gets smarter, and your emails will soon be filtering in the right places all the time! You can find the buttons at the top of each email message.
