Automatically archive social updates
Here is one useful tip [credit:googlesystem] If you'd like to automatically archive social updates, forum messages or notifications, just click the smart label in Gmail's sidebar and enable "archive incoming social updates (skip the inbox)" at the top of the page.
Obviously, the setting will use the smart label name: "archive incoming notifications", "archive incoming forums", "archive incoming bulk."
Even if you accidentally delete a filter or a label added by Gmail's Smart Labels just try to disable Smart Labels from Gmail Labs and enable it again click "save changes". You will get the deleted label back.
One of the areas where desktop e-mail clients — notably Microsoft Outlook — still supersede web clients is with custom folders and rules. With Smart Labels, Google is helping to close that gap. This may well be the reason behind overtaking Microsoft's Outlook (Hotmail) last week in the history of internet.
