Yay, filter spam in GMail by country

I’ve been waiting for this forever. Filter email from Russia or China in GMail!

  1. Click “Create Filter” located at the top of your Inbox
  2. In the “Has the words:” field, enter: lang:Russian
  3. Select “Delete it” within the Action List, and (if you have existing Russian Spam) select: “Apply Filter to Conversations below”
  4. Click “Create Filter”

Of course, if you expect to receive legitimate email in Russian or Chinese, don’t do this. 🙂 But I’d say 80% of my spam is in Chinese…
