Using multiple email addresses with your single Gmail address

When you choose a Gmail address, you actually get more than just [email protected]. Gmail address gives you greater control over your inbox and save your time and headache.

Here are three different ways you can modify your Gmail address and still get your mail:

  1. Everyone who has sign up for an [email protected] address can also receive mail sent to [email protected]. For example, if your address in Gmail was [email protected], messages send to [email protected] would be delivered to your [email protected].

  2. Insert one or several dots (.) anywhere in your email address. Gmail doesn’t recognize periods as characters in addresses — Gmail just ignore them. For example, you could tell people your address was [email protected], [email protected] or [email protected].

  3. Append a plus (+) sign and any combination of words or numbers after your email address. For example, if your address was [email protected], you could send mail to [email protected] or [email protected].

The next time you sign up for a newsletter use an address like [email protected]. This can help you to set up filters to automatically direct these messages to Trash, apply a label or star, skip the inbox, or forward to another email account.
