Too many emails?



With the start of a new school year, emails will be heading to you with increasing volume and frequency. Aren’t you glad it is only electronic mail? With all of this mail it is important to know how to organize the flow for some piece of mind. Here are some instructions from Google support on how to create a label to store all of your new emich emails. Remember, an email can be in more than one label.


Create a label

Here’s how to create a label that you can add to any of your messages:

  1. On the left side of the page, click More at the bottom of your labels list. (If you don’t see “More,” grab the gray dividing line with your cursor and drag it down to show more labels.)
  2. Click Create new label.
  3. Type the name of your new label and click Create.

You can also create a new label for a message in your Inbox by selecting the box next to the message, clicking the Label button above your message list, and then clicking Create new.

Apply your label

You can add a label to your messages in several ways:

  • When viewing your Inbox, select the checkbox next to those messages, click the Labels button, and click the label you want. (Or check the boxes next to several labels and click Apply.)
  • When viewing a message, click the Labels button to add a label to the message. You can also click and drag a label from the left side, and drop it on the message.
  • When writing a new message, click More options in the bottom right corner of the compose window, click Label, and then select one of your labels.

When you add a label to a conversation, it only applies to the messages already in that conversation – not to messages sent after you applied the label. When you search for labeled messages, you’ll see any messages that match the label, along with their conversation thread. However, you won’t be able to search for an individual message in the thread that doesn’t have that label.
