Automatically Archive a Conversation you Respond to

SUMMARY: Respond to a lot of email in Gmail and need to keep your Inbox clean? Send your e-mail and archive the conversation in one step.

Are you a very popular individual or work a job such as customer service that requires sending a lot of e-mail via Gmail? Or are you just looking for another way to keep your Inbox clean? If so, you may often find yourself replying to e-mail conversations and then immediately archiving them.

With the "Send & Archive" feature in Gmail Labs you can do both in just one step by adding a "Send & Archive" button below your composed messages.

1. Access Gmail settings. Currently you can do so by clicking the gears link and choosing "Settings" from the pull-down menu.

2. When the "Settings" screen appears, click the "Labs" tab.

3. Scroll down to "Send & Archive" and click the "Enable" radio button.
