- Disable Gmail automatic categorisation? 3 answers
Gmail has built-in categories like Social, Promotions, Updates and Forums. As a system developer I get a lot of mails from automated system notifications and these seem to get categorized by Gmail as either Updates or Forums. This is super annoying and I'd really like Gmail to stop doing this. I can't seem to find a setting anywhere that stops the built-in categories from being applied. I already of filters in place to move some of these notification mails to the relevant labels I want, but they still get categorized as Forums or Updates.
Any ideas on how to stop this?
I'm using Gmail via a web browser, no fancy mail clients.
UPDATE I forgot to mention this a company mailbox so not sure if we have all the options as a normal user. For one, I see no categories option under settings:
