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?

  • 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.

    Is it not possible to extend your filter to include the replies?

  • "Skip the Inbox" should work. What are you filtering on?

  • @ale "Skip the Inbox" would work for the first email, but any reply to the thread would bring it back to the Inbox
