Annoying marketing emails, newsletters, and spam don’t deserve to take up valuable space in your inbox.
That’s where filters come in – they let you automatically move unimportant emails and batch them so you never have to see them first thing when you check your inbox. In the same way, they move emails from important contacts into a priority queue so you always see those messages immediately.
When an unwanted newsletter or marketing email ends up in your inbox, there’s only one thing to do, right? Unsubscribe.
We’re here to tell you that’s not your only option. That’s actually not even the safest option! The act of clicking “unsubscribe” sends a signal to the email sender that your email is active. Unsubscribing can then put you on additional lists, causing the number of unwanted emails to go up instead of down.

Does opening your inbox on a weekday morning send you straight to panic mode, before you’ve even had your coffee? Every day it’s the same old story – you open your inbox and it’s full of work messages, news notifications, promotional offers, brand newsletters, personal emails, and more.

While email is intended to streamline communication, it sometimes becomes a counter-productive tool when the inbox requires too much time to manage. Many emails are simply unnecessary and constantly distract us from the important tasks we need to get done.
