If you’re like me, you like receiving an email telling you should log into facebook to check your messages or something. But those emails accumulate and obstruct the rest of your inbox!! I tried searching for facebook but that returned a bunch of legitimate emails and chats that mentioned facebook, and that I did not want to delete. Then I tried the following term:
Genius. Thanks, Google. Go through and make sure all the emails aren’t important, then click Select: All, and click Delete. Repeat until you’re happy you’ve removed all the pointless emails. From now on, delete the notifications when you’re done with them! 🙂 For more information on gmail search keys and syntax, go to the Gmail Help Centre > Searching Mail > Advanced Search. This can all be accessed using the “Help” link located in the top-right of your gmail screen.
This should be easier in a dedicated client, of course, like Mozilla Thunderbird or something: just sort by sender. Speaking of Thunderbird, looks like Mozilla won’t be supporting it anymore. 😮 Certainly not as substantially, anyways. I currently use a combination of Thunderbird and Gmail.
I laughed at this comment, by “Kurt”:
Want a new vision of mail? I got one for you:
After 8 long years start adding a f*cking scroll bar to the header view! https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9942
Amen, brother. Amen. I imagine nearly every user has had their email content obstructed by a massive header at some point.
