How to manage your Gmail Rules

Once you have set up your Gmail Rules, you will need to know how to manage them. If you ever need to change, delete, or simply review the Gmail Rules that are currently active in your inbox, follow the next steps.

  1. You guessed it, open Gmail in your web browser.
  2. Click “Settings” (it’s the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner).
  3. Then click “Settings” from the dropdown menu.
  4. On the settings window, click on “Filters and Blocked Addresses.”
  5. Under “The following filters are applied to all incoming mail:” you will see all of your active filters. Next to each rule are the “Edit” and “Delete” buttons.
  6. Once you either edit or delete the Gmail rule of your choosing, the changes will automatically be saved.

How to use the Clean email app to create Gmail Rules

Hopefully, our guide up until this point has helped to show you that creating and managing Gmail Rules isn’t as complicated as you might have thought. That said, not everyone has the time or energy to manually create multiple Gmail Rules.

If that’s the case for you, you’re in luck. Clean Email is an app that takes care of the heavy lifting when it comes to email organization. With Clean Email, you input the criteria you want for your different filters, and the app automatically creates the Gmail Rules for you.

To create a Gmail rule on Clean Email, follow these simple steps:

  1. Type https://app.clean.email/ into your address bar.
  2. Once on the Clean Email website, sign into your Gmail account via their website.
  3. Choose “Auto Clean” from the menu on the far left of the page.
  4. Choose your predetermined criteria from the list of options.
  5. Apply the rule to either all of your mail or just new emails.

You don’t have to choose from the predetermined list of criteria, however. You can also use the Clean Email app to create custom Gmail Rules. For example, you can use the Clean Email app to easily label all the emails from a specific sender. If you wanted to do so you would follow these steps:

  1. Log into your Gmail via the Clean Email webpage.
  2. Click on the “Inbox” folder.
  3. Select the messages from the desired sender. Once you select a few, the app will be able to automatically select all remaining emails from the same sender.
  4. Click “Label” at the top of the page and pick from either the labels you already have set up, or you can create a new label.
  5. Select the option to apply the label to “Selected and future similar emails.”
  6. Click “Label.”

If you want to manage your Gmail Rules in Clean Email, you can do so in just a few clicks

  2. Click on “Auto Clean” on the menu on the far left of the page.
  3. At the top of the page, click the “Your Rules” tab.

Additional Gmail tricks to help you stay organized

Another great feature available on Gmail is the ability to filter emails via “aliases.” For example, you can give out a specific alias to all inquiring customers as a way to filter this specific type of email. You can create Rules with the alias as the criteria and assign multiple behaviors to the alias.

Plus sign alias

One type of alias you can create is by adding a plus sign to your existing email address. For example, if your email address is [email protected] you can make your alias [email protected]. Emails sent to the alias will automatically be sent to your original inbox!

Period alias

You can also create an alias by placing a period anywhere before the @ sign in your original email address. You can’t add anything new, but if your email address is janedoe@g
