I have a site, say example.org. All mail to addresses like *@example.org is redirected to one account.

I use gmail to get all mail from this account.
I use few filters like to: concreteadress@example.org to tag them.

The problem is: when somebody sent mail

from sender@server
to: sender@server
bcc: hidden list, concreteadress@example.org, somebody else

my filters isn't applied. How do I change my filter to check real recipient(how did I get it?) instead of to field?

  • why don't you use bcc? – Jacob Jan Tuinstra Jun 30 '13 at 13:34
  • @Jacob Jan Tuinstra bcc:me or bcc:my-gmail@gmail.com seems to work fine, but bcc: concreteadress@example.org doesn't find anything – RiaD Jun 30 '13 at 14:14

You want to use the deliveredto: search keyword.

From Google support:

Search for messages within a particular email address in the Delivered-To line of the message header

Example: deliveredto:username@gmail.com Meaning: Any message with username@gmail.com in the Delivered-To: field of the message header (which can help you find messages forwarded from another account or ones sent to an alias).

So, searching for (or using a filter with) deliveredto: concreteadress@example.org should give you what you need.

  • When I search deliveredto: concreteadress@example.org I don't find any result. If I click to show original I see Delivered-To: my-gmail-account@gmail.com as first nonempty line. – RiaD Jun 30 '13 at 10:56
