Is it possible to apply filters for incoming emails?

Let's say, if an email is coming from [email protected] with infos in subject I want it to go to the infos1 label.

I don't want the filter to be based only on the sender, but on the subject too.

  • Yes...Just setup a filter. I for the longest time sent email I recieve addressed to a particular email address I was forwarding to the account into a special folder.

Yes. Gmail filters can include multiple components and only flag/forward/tag emails that match the multiple requirements.

Some examples from my own filters:

from:([email protected] or [email protected]) subject:("Delivery Status Notification")


The to:(+special) thing is an interesting filter. Say your user is [email protected]. You can give the email address [email protected] as your email address to someone, and all of your emails from that person (as long as they use the +special in the email address) will be filtered on that.
