What are Filters? What are smart Filters?

Filters/ Rules allow you define some conditions for incoming emails, and automatically move them to folders or add labels to the emails, when they match the conditions. 
Smart Filters by Zoho Mail, automatically identify the automated notifications, group emails, newsletters and classify them to the respective folders. When you enable Smart filters, they remove the clutter of automated emails that reach your Inbox, based on the details present in the headers. Learn more.
