I created some filters to label my e-mails in Gmail, but all of these multiple label mails have the "inbox" label too!

How can I remove the inbox label on labeled emails? (With this configuration labeled e-mail will not show in inbox.)


Edit your filter and check the "Skip the Inbox (Archive it)" option in addition to your "Apply the label" action.

    The Archive it made me sceptical first but this does exactly the expected. On other E-Mail plattforms this usually means the mail is completely removed from the folders and somewhere stored in an dedicated archive ... – derHugo Mar 20 '19 at 11:56
