Too many unread messages?

Many times, users see an important email land in their inbox; but not have time to open it right away. By the time they remember the important email, it has been buried by 2-3 pages of other emails. To fix this, users can use the priority inbox

Setting up Priority Inbox

  1. From your main Gmail window, click the SETTINGS GEAR, located in the top-right corner.
  2. Select SETTINGS.
  3. Select the INBOX tab.
  4. In the Inbox Type section, select PRIORITY INBOX from the drop-down menu.
  5. Priority Inbox
  6. In the Inbox Section section, add sections(such as unread mail) by clicking ADD SECTION.
  7. In the Inbox Section section, customize the different sections of the inbox by clicking OPTIONS to the right of each section.
  8. Priority Inbox Options
  9. When you are finished, click SAVE CHANGES. You will be taken back to your inbox with the new priority inbox set up.
