Decluttering CC′s From Your Inbox

Normally you don't have to read the emails that you are CC'ed on right away and you can read them on your own time.

So why are these emails cluttering your inbox? :(

Here’s how to set up an easy and powerful filter that routes emails you’re CC’ed on to skip the inbox and put into a different folder:

  1. Click on the gear icon in the top right corner and then "Settings"

  2. Click on “Filters and Blocked Addresses” and add a new filter by clicking on “Create a new filter”

  3. To find all emails you’re CC’ed on, in the field “Has the words” you want to type in:

  4. Click on the link “Create filter with this search”. On the next screen, you can then decide how you want to deal with these kinds of emails. I recommend you make the emails skip the inbox and then move them to a folder. In this case, you’d create a new label “CC”

  5. Now click on the “Create Filter” button and you’re done!

Now you can read all the emails you’re CC’ed on at a time that’s convenient for you without having them clutter your inbox.
