I have tried unsubscribing the "Important" folder and hiding it in Gmail. Now I have succeeded in hiding the folder but email is still added there by the Gmail Priority Inbox "feature". Can I disable this feature so I can read mail and manage it myself from one folder, preferably the Inbox?
The use of the priority inbox is controlled by the settings:
To turn it off:
- go to : gear, settings.
- Click on the inbox tab.
- Change inbox to default.
- click save changes.
Note: I also have don't use markers/don't use my past actions/don't override filters selected.
