Automatically Star All Future Emails from Specific Senders in Gmail
Gmail provides some email management automation capabilities, including the ability to star all future emails from specific senders, via email filters, which are basically automated actions triggered when certain conditions are met.
The problem with email rules in Gmail is that their creation is far from a one-click process. Fortunately, there's a better way to flag emails in Gmail with stars: a third-party inbox organizer app called Clean Email.
With Clean Email, adding stars to all new messages from specific senders is as simple as enabling a single toggle:
- Go to: https://app.clean.email/
- Select Senders from the Tools section in the left pane.
- Find the sender whose messages you want to star automatically and click on it.
- Enable the Add Star to New Messages toggle.
Once clicked the toggle, you will be asked if you’d like to apply the rule to existing messages or not. Click Confirm to create the rule.
From now on, all new messages from the sender will be starred automatically, making it easy to identify them.
You can check all the senders you’ve marked as starred in the Adding Star tab of the Senders section.
Sender Settings isn’t the only feature that can be useful for having an organized and clean Gmail inbox. If you receive a lot of unwanted marketing newsletters, you can use the Unsubscriber tool to easily opt out from multiple subscriptions in one place. Just select the subscription you’d like to unsubscribe from and choose an action like Unsubscribe, Pause, Keep Newest, and more. If you choose to unsubscribe, the app will send unsubscribe requests and complete unsubscribe forms without any manual work needed.
