gmail (email) forwarding and change sender

Where I work, I am occasionally on call.  My employer uses gmail.  I have filters set up to forward selected messages to my android phone.  When I receive the message, it can be from multiple addresses, such as addr1@ABC.com or addr2@ABC.com, (about 6 in total).  So I know this is a business call instead of a personal call, I have multople contacts set up on my android phone  and a distrinctive ringtone associated with these contacts.   This is a bit cumbersome, as if there is a new email address, I need to configure a new contact.  

I thought I could simplify by using an intermediate email account to change the sender name, ie: employer > intermediate > android phone, but this just seems to pass thru the original email address.  Is there a way on an intermediate account to thange the "from" address, so my android phone receives email from me@intermediate.com.   This would simplify my contact management to one contact.  The intermediate account I tried is gmail, but I do not care who is the intermediate is.  Just looking for a solution

When you say, forwarding emails to your Android phone - is it to another email account?
Alternate would be to create filter in your gmail account and sync/check only that folder.
