Yes you can do this but not without a little bit of hacking around. From my answer at Equivalent of 'archive' for priority inbox \ multiple inbox : The only way that I have found to do it is either with the element inspector in chrome/safari or with firebug in firefox. The good news is that once you have made the settings change it will work in all ...

You can’t control if a message will be marked as important in the recipient’s inbox. The priority marks in Gmail are algorithm-determined so you can’t control them. How importance ranking works To predict which of your incoming messages are important, Gmail automatically takes into account a number of signals, including: Who you email: If ...

The correct filter is in:important Place that text in the text-box labeled Has the words when creating a filter.

The only solution that I could find was to access my Gmail account with a 3rd party service like Mail2Web (not free) via IMAP and look for mails in the [Gmail]/Important IMAP folder. I ended up using Ultimate Notifier because my goal was to get push notifications to my iPhone for important mail. Details on: http://apple.stackexchange.com/q/8250/3566

As an alternative, have you tried the Multiple Inboxes lab feature? Click the gear icon -> Settings -> Labs, and find Multiple Inboxes. When you have activated it, a new tab appears on the settings screen. It lets you divide your inbox view into multiple sections. Each section displays the results of a pre-defined search. It should be possible to specify ...

Notice that all the unread messages that you have in your account are from ProZ.com (excluding the once you have blurred) and also the latest email is dated to Sep 24 - i.e., many months ago. It's possible that you have a label/filter that is making this messages skip the inbox. You should really check out each and every filter that you have. Also, I have ...

You might want to delete all your filters and recreate them. I had a similar problem and I think it was just a complicated filter setup. Recreating the filters helped me.

After more than a month of waiting and getting no answers at Google Groups from anyone at Google, as of today, it just started working again. Another Gmail feature broken and fixed by Google without a word.

Google says that label filters will never match incoming mail but that's a lie. label:important works fine for me. label:whatever works fine too, if you created another filter that assigns that label. Perhaps what they were trying to say is what they say clearly anyway in the 2nd page of the filter's definiton: the filter works on incoming mail only; mails ...
