I recently created a second Gmail account with more businesslike username that I can use for my business-related emails. For the purposes of this question, let's call the accounts:
Since (at least for now) I will spending most of my face time on SteveOld, I'd like SteveNew to forward all incoming msgs to SteveOld. I have already configured this option in SteveNew.
Next step (in SteveOld), I want to be able to distinguish emails that come in from SteveNew from all my other messages. From what I see these emails "look like" they came from the original sender (e.g. Mickey@Mouse.com) , not SteveNew.Accordingly,that method does not help.
So, I set up a filter (in SteveOld to mark any message that comes in from SteveNew with a label NewGmail. HOWEVER, it seems that this label works only if I specifically send a message from SteveNew to SteveOld, and does not recognize that, behind the scenes, Gmail forwarded a message (from Mickey@Mouse.com to SteveNew) to SteveOld.
1. Is there a way for SteveOld to recognize that such an email was auto-forwarded from SteveNew?
2. If not, I'd welcome any suggestions as to how I can easily tell what messages were auto-forwarded.
Sorry for the length of this question, and thanks in advance for any help! :)
