Students, faculty, and staff can set filters in Gmail to process emails received from particular groups or individuals.

Creating Filters

  1. Log in to Gmail and click the gear icon in the top right corner.
  2. On the drop-down menu, click on Settings.  Select the Filters and Blocked Addresses tab.
  3. Click Create a new Filter.  The "Search mail" box will appear.
  4. In the "From" field, enter the group email address or individual email address you would like to filter. You can also enter in key words, email sizes and other email settings to filter. Click the magnifying glass to test the search criteria.


If you want to filter by individual email addresses and not a group email, you will need to create individual filters for each person. Although you can create filters with multiple email addresses, it will only filter emails from all the email addresses listed, not each individual email address.
