I have my university email account set up in Gmail to send and receive. Previously, I created a filter that would move all messages to firstname.lastname@example.org to the email@example.com label. I have since deleted that filter and changed the name of the label firstname.lastname@example.org to Bar, but messages that are sent to email@example.com are still being labeled as Bar. What is causing this?
Make sure you haven't told Gmail to automatically add a label on POP3 import:
To check go to:
- Accounts and Import
- Check mail from other accounts (using POP3)
Make sure the "Label incoming messages" checkbox is unchecked.
