Anyone might have a feeling that he or she wants to automatize his/her email account in some way, thus making sorting out the mail easier and faster. One of the way of doing so is the feature of Yahoo filters, which actually allows you to manage your mail automatically if there are any common patterns. After setting up such filters, emails, sorted out according to those filters, will be moved to a specified folder. In order to set up Yahoo filters, stick to the instructions beneath.
Start the process of the filter creation by accessing the Yahoo's main page, the internet address of which is the following: http://yahoo.com/.
You should find the settings button out there, in the right-upper area of the webpage. Once the button has been spotted, click on it.
You will have to sign in to your Yahoo account. Provide the email address of yours and click on "Next."
The next action of yours must be entering the password on the next page and clicking on "Sign in."
On the right side of the top, there is a settings button. You need to move your cursor over the button in order to prompt a pop-up menu.
In that pop-up menu, you should give a click to "Settings."
You will open the window of settings, where you need to click on "Filters" (in the settings menu, placed on the left).
The window you are viewing is the place where you can manage your Yahoo filters. Click on the "Add" button, if you wish to add a Yahoo filter.
In the window of a new Yahoo filter, there will be different settings. The first field is the name of the filter (how it will be displayed for you). Then, you have four fields of conditions, and you can fill some or all of them. Those fields are: from, to, subject, and body, which stands for each of the fields of a letter (sender, receiver, topic, and the main part of a letter). Conditions might be: contain (i.e. letters that feature words), does not contain (lack those words), begins with, and ends with.
In the last field, you should specify what should be done with the letters that have been sorted out. In the given example (look at the screenshot), letters with the word "drunkard" in the email address of a sender and with the word "vodka" in the subject will be moved to a trash folder. For instance, emails from firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or with titles like "Vodka party today!", will be moved to the trash folder automatically.
After specifying all conditions and actions, click on "Save."
You will notice the newly set up filter to be displayed in a table of filters. You can add more filters (click on "Add), remove the existing ones (select a filter you want to remove and click on "Remove"), or edit the existing ones (select a filter and click on "Edit").
After all, click on "Save."
