I have a situation where I want all emails with a specific word in the subject field sent to one email address. All other emails I want sent to a different email address.

Then have them set as read and delete. Any one know how I can achieve this?

follow the screen shots below.

Search subject:(word), the reason i put * is so that it matches with wildcard so no matter where the word appears in the subject it will pass through the filter. Then click on the show search options.

click on create filter with this search.

Select what options you want and what email to forward it to.

And then finally do another search and but putting a - in-front of your word and this means that you do not want that word there.
