How To Filter Out Credit Emails from Standard Mailers at Gmail Boxes

This Article will tell you step by Step instructions as to how to filter your email
at Gmail Email Accounts to Separate the Standard Mail from the Credit Based Emails
from a Particular Safe list so that You can find your Credit links Easily

I had been asked how to filter the emails that you receive from Safe lists that allow Standard Mail
and have Credit Emails to click.

Like I stated in my other article (New to Internet Marketing? What are Safe lists? )
I do not open any Standard Emails as I feel that the members who use them do not have Credits which means to me
that they are not earning the Credits (Reading other members emails)
So I use a Filter to separate the 2 emails from that particular Safe list
Here is how:
Log in to your Gmail box
Click on Settings
Click on Filter
Scroll down to Set Up Filter
Where it says From: Add the Email Address of the Safe list you want to filter
Click Next Step

Tick the Box next to: Apply the label:
Use the Scroll bar and choose NEW Label
type in the name of the Safe list here
Tick box: Never sent to Spam
then before you Click Create Filter look to the right of it
It will tell how many emails are in your box with that particular email address
with a Tick box next to it: Also apply filter to 500 conversations below.
If you have lots of emails as I do .. tick that box
then click Create Filter

Now Go Back to the Set up Filters as instructed above
this time
Add the email address Again as you did above
Now this time  Look to the Right it says:
Has the words:
This time put in this box:Click this link to earn credits
or put in: to earn credits

Click Next Step
(You can tick the box: Skip inbox if you want NONE of these emails to go in the inbox and be sent directly to
the label)
Go to the Apply Label Again and this time make a new label with:
The safe list name Credits
and tick never send to Spam
now look at the tick box on the right of Apply filter if it says you have:
Also apply filter to 200 conversations below
Tick that box and Apply filter

Walla it is made successfully
Now I have to Make mention for you to be aware of this:
When emptying the boxes
Go to Your : The Safe list Credits Label FIRST
click all the emails with Credits you want to click then go to
the label with Just the Safe list Name and then empty that
This will Empty BOTH labels.

My mistake was I emptied the safe list label and then went to the safe list label Credits
and it was empty! As Gmail will combine ALL email in the Main Safe list Label and separate them
into the Credit  label
Hope this helps and hopefully it makes sense
Let me know if you need further help
Best Wishes

Thanks for that article Dee. I knew there had to be a way to do it but I could not figure it out. I only have about 70 safelists to update with this so I know what I will be doing for a while. Thank you it was a great article.
