I'm on some mailing list for a volunteer group and the coordinator constantly sends out nag emails. Without being off-putting to her and trying to get my name axed from it, can I just filter all those emails? This person uses cc for mailing lists rather than bcc so it seems do-able. I do occasionally (rarely) get relevant email sent just to me, so I don't simply want to filter everything from her.

How can I set up a Gmail filter that catches everything where I'm not the sole recipient?

Try searching from:coordinator cc:me. If that search turns up the results you expect, you can use it to filter those messages to skip the inbox and add a label.


The best filter you can create is for the following query: from:(coordinator) to:(volunteer1, volunteer2) where coorinator is her email and volunteer1 and volunteer2 are emails of people who are only on this list. This way you'll avoid filtering out anything else.

  • What if the list changes?

  • Then you'll have to update the filter. Unfortunately, GMail doesn't have an operator for multiple recipients (i.e. "me and others").

Try filtering on deliveredto:[email protected], that worked for me.
