I am not able to access work email (Exchange) on my mobile phone due to corporate policy.
Because of that I forward copies of those messages to my Gmail account.
The forwarded messages are all received in Gmail with "FW:" prepended to their subjects.
In Gmail I would like to organize these messages using labels tied to the sender.
For example, if the message contains
From: john, doe <[email protected]> I would like to label it
I have encountered the following problem:
From:in the SEARCH causes Gmail to look at the sender address which is always my corporate address since I'm forwarding them therefore a match isn't made.
- I would like to label only messages that start with the search string and not ones that contain it further down to avoid matching messages that are actually responses to messages they originally sent.
Is this possible with Gmail filters?
If not, is there a script that can do this job?
