Gmail allows you to have multiple email addresses with a single account for free. In addition to separating with dots you can also use the plus.
Do you have a Gmail account and need a second or even a third? With a single account you have infinite gmail addresses. One way is to change the suffix gmail.com to googlemail.com, trick that we mentioned in more detail here.
The second is to use dots on the left side of the address, which also tricks you we had presented here.
Today we will tell you about the possibility you have with the plus sign. Suppose your Gmail username is iguru, which means you are receiving emails at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can after the first synthetic and before the @ (duck), put the plus sign (+) and then write whatever you want. See some examples of email email@example.com:
Messages sent to any of the above unique addresses will still end up in your Gmail inbox. But now it will be easier for you to organize your inbox. For example, you can filter incoming emails from the sender and add bulk tags to your inbox.
That is, you can give your bank the email eg firstname.lastname@example.org and everything that comes in this email will have to do with the bank. Let that so you find out to which other third parties the bank gives your data. Additionally, you can create filters to tell Gmail what to do with messages sent to that new address.
There is another advantage. You can use a single Gmail address to sign up for the same site multiple times. While some sites suppress such dividers in the name or simply do not allow non-alphanumeric characters, most of them will let it pass.
Problems may occur if a site decides to treat the separator as invalid, but does not warn you about it with an error message. In such cases, an email to you at email@example.com could end up with the person holding firstname.lastname@example.org
On the other hand you should be aware of these features of Gmail as they could cleverly trick you into using them. For example if you receive an email from email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org with a tempting suggestion you should immediately understand that it is a trap.
