30-Second Tech Trick: How to Mute Group Email Messages

Feb 11, 2014

If you're using Gmail and you're tired of all the reply-alls coming in for a certain message, here's what to do:

1. Select the message, and then click the More button in the upper right-hand corner, and then Mute.

2. Future replies will skip your inbox, though you won't actually be removed from the message. To get the message back, look for it under All Mail or search for it using Gmail's search tool.

3. There's a similar feature for certain versions of Outlook -- sometimes called Ignore -- so check with your IT person (or search the web for it) to see if it'll work.
