I use two email addresses: me@gmail.com and me@other.com. I automatically forward all emails received to me@other.com to me@gmail.com. Now I need to set up a filter in my Gmail box so that every email forwarded from me@other.com to me@gmail.com is marked by a certain label. But I don't know how to filter my incoming emails for the forwarded ones. I tried to filter for emails where the header 'to' contains me@other.com. The problem is that this does not filter emails sent to me in a (blinded) copy. Any suggestions?

From Gmail Help:

Label emails automatically
You can label emails as you get them based on specific criteria, like who sent the email or keywords in the email.

  1. On your computer, open Inbox.
  2. On the left, next to the label you want, click Settings (gear icon).
  3. Under "Automatically add messages," click Add.
  4. In the "From" field, click the Down arrow Down Arrow.
  5. Choose an option.
  6. Enter a name, email address, or keyword. Emails that would be labeled are shown below.
  7. To include more criteria, click And and repeat steps 5 and 6.
  8. When you’re finished adding criteria, click Save.

besides using a filter to process incoming emails you can use check email from other accounts to pull the email from the other account.

This is done via settings/accounts and import and look for the section called "check email from other accounts"

You can add a label to all the incoming mail, you can also archive all the incoming mail so it skips the inbox. You can decide if you want to delete the mail from the other account as it is pulled. You will also have to enter the username and password.
