I used filters to automatically label newsletters in Gmail. For example, I added a filter that matches incoming email id to [email protected] etc. and labels them as READING. But for some reason, labels are not being automatically added as new emails arrive.

READING filter

How to debug it?

1 Answer 1


The first step in debugging is to try with only one From: address. Does that work?

You need to break up the various From: addresses separated by OR operators. No email is going to be from [email protected] and [email protected] and ... etc.

You want to change your filter to:

Matches: from:([email protected] OR [email protected] OR [email protected] OR [email protected] OR [email protected] OR [email protected])

(Note that the "OR"s need to be in all uppercase for it to work properly.)
