I've tried using a filter to skip the Inbox, but when someone else replies to the original email it ends up in the Inbox again.

    Did you try using the "mute conversation" feature? – ale Feb 5 '11 at 3:09
  • What I am trying to avoid is having to hit mute conversation on every conversation that fits the filter criteria. That's why I want to use filters. Unfortunately it looks like Gmail Filters do not support mute. – Gil Milow Feb 8 '11 at 22:37

    Is it not possible to extend your filter to include the replies? – MrWhite Aug 2 '13 at 19:26
  • "Skip the Inbox" should work. What are you filtering on? – ale Sep 30 '14 at 0:51
  • @ale "Skip the Inbox" would work for the first email, but any reply to the thread would bring it back to the Inbox – Agos Jul 27 '20 at 7:57

You are correct, it is not possible to use a filter to mute conversations.
