Smart Group for All Inboxes


Is there a way to use ‘All Inboxes’ as a search criterion?

Use case: to automatically add my ‘To Be Assessed’ label to any item in any of my database Inboxes.

Obviously, I can select ‘Inboxes’ (with unified inboxes) in the Sidebar to see a consolidated list, but how do I apply a smart rule to that consolidated list?

As far as I can tell, I can only select one inbox at a time as a smart rule target.

I know I can do a saved search (kind:any label:0 scope:inboxes), but that produces a Smart Group. How do I turn that into the target for a Smart Rule?

(If there’s another way to achieve the same goal, please let me know…)

Many thanks,


That’s currently not possible but planned for future releases.

Thanks for the quick answer, Cris.

So, are my only options at the moment for this sort of automation either a script attached to the Inboxes, or separate Smart Rule for each Inbox?


Yes, these are the only options if you want to use multiple inboxes.
