I'm having trouble with the Gmail filters I set up.

Suppose I create a filter for an email with the subject line "Hello," so
that the message goes into my Hello folder, bypassing my inbox.

What actually happens is, the Hello message goes into the Hello folder, but
a copy remains in my inbox. If delete the copy from my inbox, the copy in
my Hello folder is also removed. That is not helpful.

Comments and suggestions would be appreciated. This is driving me crazy.
