I have a site, say All mail to addresses like * is redirected to one account.

I use gmail to get all mail from this account.
I use few filters like to: to tag them.

The problem is: when somebody sent mail

from sender@server
to: sender@server
bcc: hidden list,, somebody else

my filters isn't applied. How do I change my filter to check real recipient(how did I get it?) instead of to field?

You want to use the deliveredto: search keyword.

From Google support:

Search for messages within a particular email address in the Delivered-To line of the message header

Example: Meaning: Any message with in the Delivered-To: field of the message header (which can help you find messages forwarded from another account or ones sent to an alias).

So, searching for (or using a filter with) deliveredto: should give you what you need.

When I search deliveredto: I don't find any result. If I click to show original I see Delivered-To: as first nonempty line. – RiaD Jun 30 '13 at 10:56
