I have been using Gmail for a while and created a bunch of aliases for different mailing lists and websites, with "name.firstname+website@gmail.com"

I am currently switching to another email provider for my personal email and keeping Gmail for mailing lists. Since several of my contacts still have my Gmail address only and might still send me messages, I would like to transfer the emails sent to "name.firstname@gmail.com" (without the alias) to my new account.

I created the following filter in Gmail:

to:name.firstname@gmail.com
forward it 

But this filter still takes into account the messages sent to name.firstname+website@gmail.com

I also tried with "deliveredto", "hasnouserlabel" but no luck. Is it possible to create such a filter?

I couldn't figure out a single filter but you may just want to write out every alias?

-to:(+bills OR +offers OR +deals)
  • I implemented this solution by changing my websites email addresses with name.firstame+website+websitename@gmail.com. A bit long to do, but it works! Thanks! – Korydween Mar 1 '18 at 10:29

Use an exact phrase search without the @ symbol:

to:"name.firstname gmail.com"

I assume gmail handles @ as a special case and prepends a wildcard. By dropping the at symbol and adding quotes, it searches for that exact phrase. Thus, your filter will only target emails without an alias.
