I have been using "to:gmu...@googlegroups.com" but I realize I could use
"[GMusers]" as well. Are there any advantages to either or are they
pretty much the same in result?
I could agonize over this kind of decision for days. LOL.
I simply put "gmusers" in the To field, and it works every time.
This way, the no. of filters gets reduced greatly. You might be
getting mails from one source on a topic today, but hey tomorrow there
might be more sources from which you would like to get mails and
instead of creating another filter that applies the same label,
plussing keeps it neat. It's like planning ahead.

I always filter on the tag [GMusers] but it does seem to miss a few.
I've had some email come through from lists that for some reason,
don't have that tag on it. So I started filtering on both. ;)
As far as I can tell, the search function ignores the brackets, so
"gmusers" and "[GMusers]" would be identical searches...
I've been setting up shortcuts for each of my regular searches,
basically each is just a "stored" search to give me a quick view, and
the brackets seem to make no difference in those searches.
I can see what you are doing, but there is a part of it I can't seem to
wrap my mind around. :)
I can't see how to create a label without selecting a conversation. Is
there a way to create an empty label and I just can't see it? Or do
you label a conversation with your desired label and then remove it
from the conversation?
Ahhh! Under Settings>Labels
But I have a further question. :)
I will end up with an e-mail address like wholmes + GMail @ gmail.com
once I have created the label. In order to use this to subscribe to
mailing lists I will have to submit it through a web form, no? Is
there any way to send a message to somelist-subscribe @
somelistserver.not from wholmes + GMail @ gmail.com?
I use plus addresses a lot on other systems but I haven't figured
out a good way to use them with Gmail. For example, what does
your Gmail filter condition look like for mail sent to
accountn...@gmail.com. What I'd like to do is filter on
Because at Gmail the Delivered-To header records the plus
address. I've tried using
Has the words: Delivered-To: accountname+gmail
But that doesn't work. I "bounce forward" a lot of my mail from
other systems to my Gmail account and it would be nice if I could
use Gmail's plus addresses to automatically label these bounced
forward messages. I've also tried to use a Gmail filter to filter
on this header
But that doesn't work either. It seems that Gmail's filter
conditions ignore some of the hidden headers (i.e., the headers
that you see only when you click on More Options > Show
Original). If anyone is interested in how I use plus addressing,
I've written about it on my Procmail Quick Start, which is here:
I'd really like to hear more about how people are using Gmail's
plus addresses and what your plus-address filters look. Mainly
I'm interested in how you deal with messages that are sent to a
plus address but the plus address does not appear in the To or Cc
header (for example list mail and bounced forwarded mail).

If what you are saying is that a mail sent to a gmail account with a +
suffix in the id would be automatically delivered to a Label with the
same suffix without creating a flter for that, I dont see that

That does not happen on my Gmail account and, at least in April, The
Gmail Team agreed. Here's an excerpt of my correspondence with them:
| Hello Nancy,
| Thank you for your email. We apologize for our delay in getting

| the plus sign.
| If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to

| Is it possible to use "plus addressing" to automatically assign a
