There are some companies that will email me and make it nearly impossible to unsubscribe.

I'm looking for a way to create a rule to auto-archive or delete their email. The problem is that creating a rule like that takes too long and gets me out of the flow of answering email.

Is there a way to quickly create this kind of rule -- ideally with a single click?

Why exactly that's a problem? I'd look for greasemonkey scripts or make one if I were you. – cregox Jun 9 '11 at 0:47

A single click option would be to use the 'Report Spam' button;

Gmail Report Spam Button


To remove spam from your inbox:

  1. Select the unwanted messages.

  2. Click Report Spam.

Hope this helps.
