Methods to include or exclude certain emails or messages from landing in your inbox or search results.

Filters are rules or parameters one uses in order to exclude or include certain content from either appearing in an inbox or being returned in a search result.

The use of filters helps manage incoming messages as well as increase the signal-to-noise ratio by stating which and/or what type of content is allowed or wanted.

For questions specific to filters in Gmail, please use instead.
