⭐ Before manipulating the Inbox settings, select the three Stars

For to-do's, follow-ups, and reference material, I use the yellow-bang, purple-question, and blue-info (respectively). You set these by clicking in the email and rotating to the Star you want. 💡 I also remove the default yellow-star.
