So a new feature in iOS 10 is the Mail Filter Button which you see at the bottom left corner of the Mail app. It's hard to miss. It's a pretty useful feature for a lot of people.

Whatever mailbox you're looking at, in this case my Inbox, if I just tap that button it will start filtering. You can see it says Filtered By Unread. So that's nice. I can filter by Unread or see Everything in my Inbox.

But you can customize what the filter is. So if I tap where it says Filtered By Unread I get this control here. I can say Adjust This Filter.

So I can say Only Include from certain accounts. I can say Show Me the Unread ones or maybe Show Me the Flagged ones or both. I can say whether addressed to me or cc to me. Or whether it has attachments or whether it's from a VIP.

So I can adjust all of that to my liking. Let's say if I change it to Flagged, hit Done, and now you can see it says Filtered by Flagged.

If I tap the button there at the bottom left again it changes the filter.

So if I were to go ahead and flag this email here and look, I see the flagged email.

    The button you’re discussing on my Mail program is in a completely different place. In the top right-hand. Is this OK?
