I have a client who often forgets to CC my boss. I'd like to set up a Gmail filter that detects when he isn't in the To/CC fields for e-mails from this client and forwards a copy to him.
Is this possible using Gmail's filters?

You can use the
- minus symbol to specify NOT and you can put miltiple arguments simply by separating them with a space.
Create a filter with the following:
The above filter will return emails that are from
firstname.lastname@example.org, have been mailed to
email@example.com but have NOT been mailed to
Now you just need to set that filter to auto-forward to you boss' email address
Try a filter based on if the address is even in there at all. Something like the following:
This should highlight any incoming emails that do not contain the above email address anywhere which you could then target to forwarding on to.
