This was the plea for help:
Is there a way to automatically trash emails received from “do not reply” sources?
I really don’t get why anyone would want to buy something from someone you can’t get back to.
But I still have to waste time dealing with this unsolicited [expletive deleted].
Help me waste less of my life on this at present incompostable process.
Thanks in advance!
Here’s how to deal with it:
First of all, those notices are usually not selling you anything, and the company always has another address if you need to contact someone. “Do not reply” messages are automated messages generally used for informational purposes, and usually tell you things like:
- “Your domain name has been renewed.”
- “Your automatic payment has failed.”
- “Your appointment needs to be confirmed.”
- “We received your credit card payment.”
- “Someone sent you money.”
If you REALLY don’t want them, then depending on how you read your mail, you should be able to search for “do not reply” or “do-not-reply” and see it that brings up the emails you don’t want.
If it does, create a filter for those words, then choose what you want to be done with them. If you think you will ever need them again, I would suggest “skip inbox and archive” is a better choice than “delete without showing them to me.”
Or you could archive them or create a label and tag them all so you can find something if you need it.
Another way to search would be to look for the email addresses you get them from. Then you could decide to delete some and save others if you need them.
The problem, as expressed by an annoyed subscriber
I don’t want to have a plastered Get Clients Authentically sealed across a blog page I’m trying to read.
It’s annoying, makes the article hard to read and is extremely off-putting.
Please take it off.
