How can I stop Gmail from categorizing my e-mails under two labels, "Updates" and "General". I created a new category called "Travel", another called "Finance".
Each time I apply a filter or a manually assign those label or categories to my email(s), the category "Updates" also gets applied. I have tried everything. The worse thing is, each time I try to remove the "Updates" label, it also removes the "Travel" or "Finance" label, almost as if they are nested inside Updates which I have no visual indication that that's the case.
If this is by design, it makes no sense. This has to be a glitch and if so, how can I solve it? It's very very inefficient as I have already spent hours trying to find a workaround.
