I've got several email accounts, but I always set them up to be auto forwarded to the main one, so I always check just one inbox. This is awesome, but sometimes I need labels to organize and categorize work, promos, academic, etc...
Lets suppose main account is
firstname.lastname@example.org, academic is
email@example.com, and work is
firstname.lastname@example.org, What I have now is academic and company forwarding everything automatically to Gmail, and it's working, and some labels are working as well, but there are some groups such as
email@example.com that is a list to all of the students in that class, or
firstname.lastname@example.org that has same behavior.
I set up a label called "academic" to everything in Gmail that matches
To:email@example.com, and in this scenario is working:
From: firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com (firstname.lastname@example.org forwards everything to email@example.com) So in inbox, I see "To: firstname.lastname@example.org", and that conversation gets the label!
But, let's suppose this scenario:
From: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org (It's forwarded auto to all students, so email@example.com receives it) (firstname.lastname@example.org forwards everything to email@example.com) So in inbox, I see "To: firstname.lastname@example.org", and that conversation does not get the label!
I don't want to modify the label so it consider email@example.com AND firstname.lastname@example.org, it's just not practical, there are like 15 groups among university, familiar and work, so filters would be a bit confuse.
Is there a way that Gmail detects that email is being forwarded FROM academic, without taking into account the TO and FROM fields, so it puts the correct label on it?
deliveredto field was quite useful for admin by google accounts, but that field seems to stop working when secondary accounts are not Google, such as Gmail or a simple cpanel email account. How do I get same effect with different accounts?
