❱❱ 2 Minutes to Hassle-Free Reading


The Android Intelligence newsletter is chock full of good stuff — but sometimes, email apps see the newsletter and automatically assume it's some sort of update, promotion, or occasionally even spam. That's because of the way the newsletter is delivered and the similarity between that setup and the one used by marketers.

Not to fear, though: There's a foolproof fix. All you've gotta do is create a filter that tells your email service the newsletter is actually something you want to receive — and that you want it in your primary inbox and not tucked away in some out-of-the-way spot.

Most modern mail services make it relatively easy to do that. Here, we'll go through the steps to set up a simple filter for the newsletter in Gmail. It shouldn't take more than a couple minutes to do, and best of all? Once it's done, you'll never have to think about it again.

❱❱ The Newsletter Filtering Fix

❱❱ The Newsletter Filtering Fix



First, open up Gmail in your desktop browser. See the big search bar at the very top of the screen? Tap the downward-facing arrow at its far-right end. That'll pull up a box with a bunch of different fields in it, like this:

Next, in the “From” field, type [email protected] — the email address from which the newsletter always comes — and then click the “Create filter” button at the bottom of the box. That'll bring up a new box that looks something like this:

Now, in that box, check the line labeled “Never send it to Spam.” Check the line labeled “Categorize as,” too, and then click the text next to it that says “Choose category” and select “Primary” from the list of options that appears.

Finally, click the blue “Create filter” button at the bottom of the box, and that's it: Your filter is created, and all future newsletters should land right in your primary inbox — the main tab and the place where you're most likely to see them.

Problems? Give me a shout, and we'll figure it out. Otherwise, pat yourself on the back and go get yourself a soda as a reward for a job well done. This one's on me, pal.
