I have two Gmail accounts: my normal Gmail account (
email@example.com), and an account for my school that is hosted through Gmail (
I get lots of emails on both accounts, and some people send me emails in multiple contexts (friends that I work with). I have all emails from
firstname.lastname@example.org automatically forward to
email@example.com, so that I have a single point of searching and archiving and don't always have to swap back and forth between accounts to do some basic things. In
firstname.lastname@example.org, I try to filter all of these forwarded emails in my
School label and then archive them from my inbox.
This runs into a problem when the email that goes to
email@example.com does not include my direct email, like for mailing lists or some forms of bcc. Gmail forwards the email with the original from (
firstname.lastname@example.org) and to (
email@example.com), and so it ends up unread in my
How can I change either the
to: address on the forwards to
firstname.lastname@example.org OR the
from: address to
email@example.com, so that I can set up a filter that works in all situations?
