Gmail can be an invaluable tool to small business owners who want to stay connected even when away from the office without having an in-house IT department. The Web-based email service allows you to log in from any computer or laptop that is connected to the Internet. Depending on how many emails you receive, a cluttered inbox can lead to you overlooking important messages. To prevent clutter, use the filter feature as well as labels to group relevant emails together. This keeps your inbox uncluttered and allows you to separate business and personal messages so that you can see at a glance when you have received important business mail.
Log in to your Gmail account and open a message from the sender whose emails you want to group together.
