New Gmail Feature: “Mute” endless threads

Posted on November 14, 2006. Filed under: GMail |









Google rolled out a few new Gmail features this weekend including “mute,” which automatically archives messages that arrive in response to a particular conversation. Googler Adam Lasnik explains:

1) You get yet another annoying message in the same damn conversation that’s already been conversed to death.
2) You press the ‘m’ key. Unless a message is written *directly* to you (e.g., your name is in the TO spot), you’ll never see that message in your inbox again!
In short, the Mute feature enables you to tell Gmail: “Archive this conversation AND all future posts in it… just have ‘em skip the inbox!”

Very handy, especially for those of you with chatty friends that keep beating a dead horse in your inbox.
