Gmail can sort email you receive into one of several categories, by analyzing both the content of the emails and your emailing habits.
|Primary||Emails sent directly to you, from people that you interact with.|
|Social||Automated messages from social networks.|
|Promotions||Deals, offers, and other marketing emails.|
|Updates||Automatically generated updates, confirmations, bills, and receipts.|
|Forums||Messages from discussion boards and mailing lists.|
