I also suggest you share this with your readers so they don’t miss out on emails from you. Option #1 First, if you’re like me, and you want to be in control of what real email gets sent to you (as opposed to trusting some shifty algorithm), you can disable the new categories by doing this: Click the little X at the top right of your inbox — next to the tabs.
See the screenshot right here: Then, when that pops up, uncheck the “Social and Promotions” box, and click save.
Then you’ll revert to the traditional, much BETTER GMail inbox. Do you think it’s okay for a company to roll out a change where they take control over your inbox? Also, if you run an email newsletter, (or know someone that runs an email newsletter), share this with them.
Option #2 If you want to keep these silly little tabs because you think they’ll be valuable, but you’re worried about missing out on valuable emails that impact your business (like this one), do this: Step 1: Go to the Promotions Tab (like this) Step 2: Find an Email from “Derek Halpern” in your inbox. The only way to maintain control over OUR inboxes is to vote with our actions.
You can do control find, to make scanning your inbox faster and easier. When you find an email from me, drag and drop the email into your “Primary” inbox.
