NOTE: For users who are configuring specific folders to sort our email activity into, please do not utilize the keyword "Spam" in the folder name, this may lead to incorrect metrics reporting.

All emails that are sending from our system has one underlying word in the subject line that you can use to filter emails out. It's:


It's a lower case "w", lower case "u" and an uppercase "I" (I as in "Igloo")

The way to filter these emails is to:

  1. Create a new folder called "Warmup Inbox" in your mail account.

  2. Create a filter for any email that hits your inbox AND contains the word "wuI" to be marked as read and move to archive.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We only want to filter out emails that hit the inbox and NOT the spam inbox. Any email that hits the spam inbox, we automatically move it back to the inbox. You can learn more about how we move spam messages here.

Every inbox provider has a little different way of settings up filters so here's a few popular ones.

Gmail Filter Example

Step 1: Create a folder called "Warmup Inbox"

Step 2: Set up a filter like this:

in:inbox subject:(+wuI)

This filter searches the inbox only and will look like this:

Step 3: Hit create filter.

Step 4: Adjust the settings like this:
