Hi all ,
Some days ago when I was sending a mail(G-mail to G-mail) to my friend , I just mistyped his id . Like if it was email@example.com , I wrote firstname.lastname@example.org. Even after typing the wrong e mail id , my mail was delivered to him . I wondered and then I did some searching on google regarding the same and I came to know about some interesting facts …
Suppose if I have gmail id : email@example.com , then all following will work like my g – mail id –
1. coolnandy+8 firstname.lastname@example.org , here 8 char can be any valid set of characters .
As gmail ignores .’s in it’s username .
an alias made by mixture of various such alias is also an alias for your id.
cool.nandy+BB@googlemail.com will alsodirect uts mail to your inbox.
You can use it to filter your e-mails from some sources by giving them aloas id and then using a filter with to field..
