A new labs feature called Smart Labels has been released today that automatically categorizes your incoming email into groups like “bulk”, “forums”, etc. All mails that are newsletter or informational type are categorized under “Bulk”, while mails containing important information like card statements, tickets etc are automatically categorized under “Notifications”.
“Forums” includes all mails from group mailing lists. If you already use the amazing filters that Gmail offers, you can replace your existing filters with Smart Labels or continue with your existing filters along with Smart Labels. With Smart Labels, different kind of mails are categorized automatically for ease of use.
You can activate Smart Labels from Gmail Labs by going to the Settings Panel from your Gmail account.
