When you enable the warm-up activities in MailToaster for your email account, you will start sending and receiving emails to and from other warm-up users. Setting up an inbox filter will help you avoid flooding your inbox with dozens of unwanted emails. Here are detailed instructions on how to do it for GSuite and Microsoft Outlook mailboxes.

Copy an Inbox filter

Each email account connected to the warm-up system gets an Inbox filter, a unique ID that you can use as a filter for your incoming emails. To copy an Inbox filter:

  1. Open the Warm-Up Emails page and click on the necessary email account.

  2. Copy your custom ID - Inbox filter that is located in the upper right corner of the page.
