How to Mute an Email Thread in Outlook Using Clean Email
Clean Email is a third-party inbox cleaner that works with Outlook and all other major IMAP-based email services. Its Mute feature offers a more efficient and user-friendly way to stop unimportant email threads from cluttering your inbox—all while still ensuring that you don't miss any important messages.
When you mute an Outlook thread using Clean Email, the inbox cleaner will ensure that all future replies are delivered to your inbox but automatically marked as read. As a result, the messages won't interrupt your workflow or distract you from more important tasks, but they will still remain readily available.
Here's how to mute an email chain in Outlook using Clean Email's Mute feature:
- Go to: https://app.clean.email/
- Sign in with your email address and password.
- Select the Senders tool in the left pane.
- Choose the email thread you want to mute.
- Click the Mute button and confirm your decision. You can optionally apply the Mute action to existing messages in addition to all new ones.
In addition to the Mute feature, Clean Email also offers powerful Auto Clean capabilities, which are more customizable than rules in Outlook. With Auto Clean, you can set up rules to automate just about any inbox management action, from marking emails as read to flagging emails in Outlook based on conditions such as domain name, date, size, and so on.
For example, here's how to move emails to folders in Outlook automatically using an Auto Clean rule:
- Select the Auto Clean tool in the left pane.
- Click the Plus icon to create a new rule.
- Name the rule and specify the trigger conditions.
- Select Move to action and choose the desired folder.
- Click Create Rule.
The Smart Folders feature is one of the unique aspects that make Clean Email an excellent choice for Outlook users who are feeling overwhelmed. This feature organizes similar emails into groups automatically, helping to streamline and declutter your inbox.
The Screener feature is a standout characteristic of Clean Email. Screener intercepts any messages coming from new senders, quarantining them for review. This way, your inbox remains safe from potential spam or unwanted messages, giving you better control over your email experience.
All inbox cleaning actions are conveniently summarized by the Action History Summary feature, while Cleaning Suggestions offer ideas for rules and quick actions based on your past behavior and other users' preferences.
