Incredible Gmail Tip

Posted by medliorator on December 20, 2007

If you use Gmail, here is a useful trick you probably didn’t know …

Let’s say that your email address is ‘GeorgeBush@gmail.com’, basically everything sent to any of the following email addresses will be forwarded to your primary email.

  • Ge.orgeBush@googlemail.com
  • G.e.o.r.g.e.B.u.s.h@gmail.com

you can place as many dots as you want.

 

you can embed random text to your email ID using ‘+’ sign. That is to say ‘GeorgeBush+anythingyouwant@gmail.com’ can be used as your email address, as well.

 

When signing up for some website, say thatwebsite.com, you can add thatwebsite to your Gmail user ID (eg. GeorgeBush+thatwebsite@gmail.com).

There are limits to use. Some websites won’t register addresses including “+.” Spammers will often ignore text following a “+.”
