      Nice! Glad to see more people exploring email filter generation!

      I’ve also wanted more complex logic than is easily expressible with filters. My approach was to use Google Apps Script: https://developers.google.com/apps-script

      So I have one filter that sends all my incoming email to a special “Queue” label. Then I have a script that processes the queue once a minute. The benefit is that I can use plain JavaScript to implement the logic, along with a Gmail API: https://developers.google.com/apps-script/reference/gmail

      I have this running for both my personal and my work accounts, and I didn’t have to go through any additional authentication for the work one.

        It’s a shame there’s no standard way to filter emails… oh, wait!

            I use it every day and can’t imagine how one can use email effectively without it :^)

              We used it at $work[-1]. Sadly it was the only sane part of that particular setup.
