If you use gmail for your e-mail, you can easily filter out unwanted emails from people who just simply will not go away.
First click on one of the unwanted messages and then on the show details link so that you can copy the proper full email address as shown below :
Create a Filter to Delete Unwanted Emails
Next, I create a filter by clicking on the create a filter link at the top of the window. Next paste the offending address into the from field and run a test search by clicking the test search button – this will list every single message that matches the search criteria. Next, click on the next button and fill in the fields there to design the actions you want to take for mails that fit the criteria.
Normally, I just click the boxes that allows the unwanted message to bypass my inbox, and it get deleted. Once this is done, you won’t see these communications again, past and future, because they go straight to the trash bin.
Filtering More Than One Email Address
If you want to filter two or more email addresses out just separate them using the vertical pipe character as shown in the image below.
Filtering Can Be Used To Organise Your Email Too
I used address as my search criteria but of course you could use subject or trigger words in the content to determine which mails you want to process. You can use filtering to automatically remove new emails from the inbox and file them away with labels. So if you are on a list that sends you a message every two weeks for example, you can look at the title of the message, or check who it is sent from and create a filter to label those emails so you can easily find them later.
Google provide good instructions on how to work with filters.
As usual, if you watch my videos, sorry about the dogs snoring.
