"Muting or ignoring conversations" - Awesome Gmail feature

We all get lot of unwanted mails. Now the problem is we may not want to delete it but we do not like to be a part of the long mail trails. (all FYIs & “must reply if you are my friend! That bullshit keeps returning to you”)

Here is how Gmail tackles this problem for us. Gmail offers a facility of muting long conversations. If you're part of a long message conversation that isn't relevant, you can 'mute' the conversation to keep all future additions out of your inbox. By using ‘M’ shortcut key , we can simply bypass new conversations of a long mail trail and keep them away from the inbox.

Muted messages are not marked as read, are still searchable, and can specifically be found by searching for:


The beauty of this application is it does not delete the mails. You can any time refer back to them as they are saved in archives.

To un-mute a conversation, select the conversation and click Move to inbox. Doing so will move the entire conversation to your inbox and will remove the mute action, so that future messages are also delivered to your inbox.

(Note - To use the "m" shortcut key, first click "Settings" in the top right corner of Gmail and select the option "Keyboard shortcuts on)

Don’t forget to say thanks to ‘Gmail’.
