Just a few weeks ago, Gmail started to randomly mark letters as Inbox, after I send them.

  • These letters usually go to one domain. Let's say, example.com.
  • There is a filter for example.com, that does nothing but set the label, Example, so I can find them easier. See the exact filter (exported) at the bottom.
  • If the company replies from example.com, the correct label gets applied and then it goes into Sent, I get proper sorting, everything.
  • I checked on Gmail itself, and it it says:

    1. Email has "Inbox" and "Sent" filters on it. Also "Example" of course.
    2. I can remove "Sent" and "Example", but not "Inbox" filter from letter.
    3. I have the option to move it to my Inbox folder. So that implies it is only a label? But what applies the label, and why I cannot remove it?
