How can I get gmail to not notify me for email with a particular label?

(I turned "Label notifications" off for a custom label I made, but email still gets the inbox label and I still get a notification maybe because it has the inbox label. I can't see how to prevent email from getting the inbox label either)

I receive some email that I don't want to receive notifications for. Usually the kind of email that is sent to an email list.

I added some filters for various emails I receive like this e.g.

So they get the label regularblkmail

I don't want my phone to be notifying me whenever I receive an email like that.

And if that means that those emails don't even go into any primary inbox, and they go into some other category that I never see unless I click that category, or "all mail" then fine. But I don't want to get notifications.

If I go to the gmail app, and I push the 3 bars, and I go to 'settings', then pick my email address, that the email is going to, then choose Manage Labels. Some labels say "not synced", some say "last 30 days". The label "regularblkmail" says "last 30 days". (it used to say 'not synced' but I managed to get it to say synced to 'last 30 days'). When synced, which it is, it enables some options like "Label notifications". I unticked the box. But I still get notifications when the email comes.

I notice that one of the example emails has had 2 labels applied to it. "inbox", and "regular blkmail".

I don't know if the fact that it has the 'inbox' label, is the reason for it notifying me? (if so i'm not sure how to make the filter not give that inbox label to that email).

How can I prevent notifications for certain emails I filter for?

I think you would have to set up a "Filter" or "rules" (in Gmail on a browser) that would "skip the inbox" apply specific labels to certain emails
