Decluttering webmail using folders and filters

Is your webmail cluttered with a thousand emails and it gets hard to find the important ones? You can create filters to organise your webmail and sort out the emails into folders according to their purpose, increasing your productivity.

Identify First of all, you need to think which kind of emails do you want to filter, let's say you want to filter out all the course related announcements. Observe that they are sent to emails like ell101@courses.iitd.ac.in, MTL101A@courses.iitd.ac.in etc.

Create the folder Login to https://webmail.iitd.ac.in/roundcube/ and then click on the Settings icon in the left menu pane. Click on the option for Folders, and then on the icon for Create, then name it accordingly (Let's say we name it "Courses" for now), select the parent folder if you want it to appear nested inside it and then save.

Create the filter Click on the Filters icon, then in the Filter: dropdown, select To, in Contains write @courses.iitd.ac.in, let the Check folder: be Inbox, set Move to: to the folder you just created (Courses). Tick Do not apply other rules: so it does not mess up with other filters later. Save

Now open your inbox, the messages will move according to the filter (might be a slow for the first time).

The folders will also reflect on your mobile app and desktop email client.

You can explore other filter settings and create more to organise your inbox.
