Help and Support for CleanEmail

Simple start with "Quick Clean"

As you already know, Clean Email uses "smart rules" to analyze emails, making it easy to go through your mail in minutes. Most rules are pretty specific (like "Emails older than 6 months") but there also are broader rules like "All Mail" which allow you to see your whole mailbox at once.

In the Quick Clean view we grouped some of the most common rules including emails most people usually doe not want to keep. That includes older emails, social notifications, emails from dead ends etc.

In the Quick Clean view we grouped some of the most common rules.

For each rule you can choose to "Keep" (no action will be applied) or apply different actions – Move to Trash, Archive, Remove, Apply labels, or more. Visit our article about rules to read more about rules and what each does.

The text inside each rule card will be colored in either gray, blue, or red:

  • Red text indicate a “destructive” action, like “Move to Trash” or “Remove” (remove will permanently delete emails and can't be undone).
  • “Keep” (no action) is colored in grey
  • All other actions like Archive, Apply labels etc are blue.

You also have an option to automate these rules. By checking box that say “Automatically apply to matching emails in the future” you tell the system to apply the specific action to any future email that match the rule. For example, if you Archive emails older then 2 years, every day emails that become older then 2 years will be automatically removed from Inbox but kept in Archive.

If you choose to automate any action, you will find it later in the “Automation” view. You will be able to stop/pause/restart the automation at any time.

Once you are done selecting your actions, click the Clean button and start the process. You can either wait for it to finish or click on “Run in the background” to hide the progress screen and return to main interface, where you can continue working with other rules/actions.

We recommend reading a short summary, a step by step guide, and watching an introductory video to get an idea about how Clean Email works.
