How to Adjust the New Gmail

Gmail made some big changes!

If you use Gmail, you likely noticed the new “multi tab” structure across the top.  Gmail is making it’s own determination on what mail goes in each category for you!  This means some important newsletters (like ours! 🙂 ) may be dropping in the “Promotions” tab instead of the “Primary” tab.

To make sure you have mail coming into the Primary that you want, go to each tab.  If you find something in another tab that you want in the Primary area, simply drag the email to that Primary Tab (on the name Primary) at the top of the page.

Immediately after, a yellow box will appear asking, “Do this for future messages?”.  Make sure to click the “Yes” link to train Gmail to send all email from this source to your Primary tab.
