Wildcards for Gmail Filters

I wanted to create a Gmail filter to apply a label from anyone from a particular company and wasn’t sure if gmail used wildcards or not.  Lifehacker had a nice article on gmail filters and of course, their last tid-bit was on wildcards.  So, yes, gmail uses wildcards in their filters.

Example:  If the emails I wanted to apply filters to were something like this:  chris@company.com, kim@company.com, pat@company.com, then in the ‘from’  would simply be *@company.com and all the emails from those particular people would be labeled.

Also, you can make it more tricky and add more domains separating them by the “pipe” | character:  *@company.com|*@companytwo.com|*@companyetc.com
