I'm on some mailing list for a volunteer group and the coordinator constantly sends out nag emails. Without being off-putting to her and trying to get my name axed from it, can I just filter all those emails? This person uses cc for mailing lists rather than bcc so it seems do-able. I do occasionally (rarely) get relevant email sent just to me, so I don't simply want to filter everything from her.

How can I set up a Gmail filter that catches everything where I'm not the sole recipient?

Try searching from:coordinator cc:me. If that search turns up the results you expect, you can use it to filter those messages to skip the inbox and add a label.

The best filter you can create is for the following query: from:(coordinator) to:(volunteer1, volunteer2) where coorinator is her email and volunteer1 and volunteer2 are emails of people who are only on this list. This way you'll avoid filtering out anything else.

What if the list changes? – Nick T Dec 29 '11 at 19:28
Then you'll have to update the filter. Unfortunately, GMail doesn't have an operator for multiple recipients (i.e. "me and others"). – dnbrv Dec 29 '11 at 19:33

Try filtering on deliveredto:your_email_address@example.com, that worked for me.
