gmail filter - how to allow ONE emailaddress but not all others

All emails for a client's domain is forwarded to my gmail account. They are heavily spam ridden and even with gmail's spam filter I receive 2-3 spam emails pr. hour pr. account - there are at least 10 accounts!

I only need notification (domain transfer related) from one single email address.

How can i setup a filter that only allows that single email address to come through and everything else to be deleted?

Thanks in advance :)

all the emails from "domain.com" are forwarded to my primary GApps work inbox where i don't want priority inbox running.

i cannot be sure what the content from the one good email email address is, so content filtering won't do.


it's all good though, the domain transfer process is about finished :)

thanks for your suggestions!

you can use * instead an email address to select all email
then add a rule for what you need and fiddle a bit with it

From *
doesn't have "something from the email you need to see"
use test search to see that your "good" email is not selected

Ok, so I have tested it.

It is enough to put some words that only the email you need will always have in the "doesn't have" field.
then chose delete or archive as the action.

Unfortunately none of the suggestions work :(

If only gmail supported something like priority of filters i could move emails sent to okuser@domain.com first  and then delete email sent to *@domain.com.

Thanks for your help anyway.

It works by subject or message body, not by email address.
Is there anything in the subject or body that will be unique?

You also can enable pop3 or imap from settings and then configure outlook or firebird to get the email and to filter it.

Also, if you look on the top,  where your email address is displayed there is a "priority inbox-beta" maybe that is useful too.
