Filter by Contact Group in gmail

Trying to optimize my way to read mails, and making a vip group in my contacts, I got a little problem when I did try to filter the group, just because gmail doesn't support this function.
But if you have the same problem I found a little hack to do it.

Steps to filter by contact in gmail

  1. Create the group in Contacts ( if doesn't exists)
  2. Compose an email to group
  3. Copy the "To:" field
  4. Paste into the "Convert" textbox
  5. Copy the the "Convert" output into a new filter
The problem with this method is everytime when you modify the Contact Group you must to do all again.
But until gmail let do this we don't have much to do.
If do you find a new better way to filter contacts groups in gmail don't doubt comment!

BUG: the script does not handle correctly email addresses that include a comma ("Last Name, First Name" ). Commas should be expected in contact records because they are inserted by inter-system syncing, parsing and conversion scripts. Commas should be ignored, not interpreted as end-of-string.

Nice way of gathering email addresses ;P

This is not working with the new version of gmail...where do you specify the groups adddress in the forward? It says "only one @ accepted" ... ?

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately the group i am trying has too many addresses 'too long', according to gmail. Does anyone know the limit. I can work around w/ multiple filters, but would rather not waste time experimenting with length / # addresses. thx
