Gmail help....

Recommended Posts

So. Gmail does a super stupid thing. It categorizes emails by forums, promotions, social, etc. How does this effect literally all of you? When emails go there instead of directly to my inbox, I don't see them right away. And that means your emails get lost in gmail's stupid categories for all eternity. 

I figured out how to get them to show up in my regular inbox, but I want the categories to be GONE. AND NEVER COME BACK. AND STOP TAKING MY EMAILS. FOREVER. 

Anyone who can successfully help me will get a hand written thank you card from my personal stationary collection. I put stickers on all of the cards I send and everything. 

Please help, Dog Might Fans, you're my only hope. Google has failed me. 

Image result for you're my only hope

I know there is a setting somewhere because mine doesn't categorize. But it must be on the computer since I don't see the option in settings on my phone...

I'm not sure which of these you want @Anne - but it is part of their Labeling system.

So you can either turn off specific categories from the Settings-> Labels page

Or from the Configure Inbox option under the "settings gear" you can turn on/off the different pages entirely.

Hopefully one of these will help you get what you want.

My hero!!! I think that solved the problem!!! I'll wait until I come in tomorrow morning just to be sure, but as of right now there's a greeting card with your name on it... :) I've got some special post cards too. Off the top of my head I have... 

  • Pantone color swatches
  • French Impressionists
  • Yoga Cats
  • My Neighbor Totoro
  • Team America World Police (I think???) 
  • French educational poster cards (diagrams of flowers and bones and whatnot) 
  • and a bunch of random other ones

Let me know if you'd like one of those in particular :)

Cool.  I'd ask for either Totoro (as an anime fan) or the Pantone (because of my technical theatre background)

For what it's worth, I adore the right click --> mark me as spam.  When used correctly, the categories are very helpful.  e.g. Put all that linked in stuff off to the side.

Your card should be there by Wednesday at the latest :) Dropped it in the mail when I got home yesterday! 

It was so weird, though... It almost looked like there was another card stuck to it, but that can't be the case because I only wrote one!

Again - I was just happy to help.  Thanks @Anne
