Today Google rolled out a new inbox for Gmail that impacts whether or not you see emails from Simple Scrapper and any of your favorite websites. Please continue reading if you use Gmail.
The new format automatically divides your email into various categories, including Primary, Social, and Promotions. Most email newsletters and blog posts that you’ve opted-in to receive will end up in the Promotions folder unless you specifically tell Gmail what to do.
If you want to continue to see content and news from Simple Scrapper in your inbox, there are two options:
- Turn off the new Gmail format.
- Tell Gmail that you’d like to see our emails.
How to Disable the New Inbox
If you don’t want Gmail to automatically separate your emails, you can return to your old inbox.
Step 1. Click the plus sign to the right of the categories.
Step 2. Then, uncheck the boxes for Social and Promotions and click Save.
How to Tell Gmail to Show Emails from Me
Alternately, you can help Gmail learn your preferences by telling it that you want to read emails from me (Jennifer Wilson) and Simple Scrapper.
Step 1. Find any email from Jennifer Wilson or Simple Scrapper in your inbox. (Note: All of our emails come directly from me except our daily blog posts, which are automatically generated emails.)
Step 2. Drag the email to the Primary tab. If it asks you if you’d like to send future emails there, select Yes.
