Inbox Categories | EMclient Beta10


How can I modify the automatic categorization made by EMclient, that is to say, how do I indicate that an email belongs to one category or another?

Thank you.

Good question

I believe emails that appear in each category are determined via a eg: Machine learning engine like with Gmail Primary, Promotion & Social tabs etc.

I know to do that in Gmail online, you can literally just drag the email to the Categories tab you want it to goto in future, and it will then ask you if you want ro save that for future.

Or you can create a eg: filter to do that online as well for a specific sender as per the Google blog below

I tried dragging emails under the Categories to other Categories but that didnt seem to work. I also tried creating a filter to direct a specific sender to a Category but couldn’t see that that option in there.

So i dont know if you can do that “directly in eM Client” with the new V10 category tabs. Might need to do that online which then will mirror in eM Client. Im sure someone will know though on this forum.

From the V 10 beta announcement on the website:

  • Categorization for non-Gmail accounts

Our algorithm for categories still requires some more work, but please do let us know if you feel it completely misclassifies some of your messages - in such case, please include the message saved as EML file in the report (right-click > Save as).

So the devs acknowledge that categories don’t work properly yet. Having said that I agree: the ability to teach the algorhythm by manually dragging mails from one category to another would be very useful!

thank you for your reply.

Yes, I agree that being able to assist in learning by dragging emails into each category would be great.

I’ve been on beta 10 for a few days now, and yes there are emails that are not sorting correctly. There is something very strange happening, and that is that after installing and reading my inbox, it automatically classified certain emails as “Other”, with quite good criteria. However, emails received later have been incorrectly classified as “primary”, even though they share the same sender (they are newslaters).
