Google Mail now has a new Gmail Labs feature which allows every user to to pre-set Smart Labels to automatically catch bulk mailing lists, bulk messages, and service notifications.

Smart Labels act as a kind of housekeeper for the mail which ends up in the lower third of your inbox, and works in duo with the Priority Inbox. If you are wondering what kind of mail do the Smart Label catch, then you will learn that there are three main categories, and one of them is automatically kept out of your Inbox.

See bellow which are the main three mail categories that Smart Label is able to catch:
  1. Notifications such as Messages sent to you directly and automatically generated like bills, receipts, monthly statements, and updates from social services like MySpace, Twitter, Facebook etc.

  2. Bulk such as Mass mailings, like offerings from companies and newsletters. This is the email equivalent of the bulk mail you get in paper form.

  3. Forums which includes messages for forums, mailing lists and other groups you have joined.
