Smart Labels automatically categorizes incoming emails in Bulk, Notification and Forum messages.
“Bulk” mail includes any kind of mass mailing such as newsletters and promotional email which gets filtered out of your inbox by default where you can easily read it later.
“Notifications” are messages sent to you directly like account statements and receipts, and email from group mailing lists gets labeled as “Forums.”
If you are already using labels and filters to organize your emails, these smart labels won’t affect your current setup. Existing filters can be adjusted to avoid being tagged by Smart Labels and users can decide whether a Smart Label group skips the inbox. What do you think of Smart Labels?
