Two email accounts,
I set up a filter on alpha.
If to:(email@example.com) then: forward to:firstname.lastname@example.org skip inbox mark as read
I want it to come in like a normal new email on my beta account (unread, in inbox), and be filed away in my alpha account.
When a test email is sent, the email is read/archived in both accounts.
If I removed the 'skip inbox/mark as read' instructions from the filter, then it will come to inbox/unread on both accounts.
If I separate the filters (one to forward, one to read/archive), it arrives read/archived in both accounts.
In the beta account settings, email@example.com is set up as a "Send mail as" account. The 'alias' box is not ticked.
