I'm trying to find the equivalent to X-Envelope-To from my old hosting provider, for my mail client's rules.

There's an X-Original-To: but it just contains mailboxname (not address)@mailbox6.webfaction.com.

The old forum (http://forum.webfaction.com/viewtopic.php?id=4055) indicates it was being looked into at some point.

Has this ever been added? I can see it in the Received: headers, but obviously it would be easier to get it from a header that occurs once and contains only the information I want to filter on.

Hi,

Unfortunately we don't inject such a header, but the information is contained in the first Webfaction Received header - "Received: from example.org (1.1.1.1) by mx7.webfaction.com (Postfix) with ESMTP ID XXXXXXXXXX for EMAILADDRESS@EXAMPLE.ORG; .... ". Depending on how sophisticated your client rules are, you can use the Received header for this purpose.

Hi,

Still no chance to have the "X-Original-To" header?
I redirect all my emails to a single Gmail account and would like to create a filter based on the original address.
AFAIK, it's not possible in Gmail to test for the first WebFaction "Received" header.

PS: Just because I'm curious, can you please tell me why (briefly is fine). Thanks :-)

I'm not sure why Gmail can't test in the way you described. I'm forwarding from WebFaction-hosted email addresses to a Gmail account, I just just filter on the recipient address. In Gmail's filter list, it looks like "Matches: to:(user@domain.com)". Are you not able to filter like that?

Yes but not when you're in Bcc.

I think that you are correct; the filter does not work for Bcc. I've had similar issues, so I ended up pulling the mail from Gmail using POP and applying a label on the messages instead of forwarding them.
