make one g-mail id … use multiples !!!

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 abcd@gmail.com , I wrote ab.cd@gmail.com. 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 :  coolnandy@gmail.com , then all following will work like my g – mail id –

1.   coolnandy+8 char@gmail.com , here 8 char can be any valid set of characters .

2.   coolnandy@googlemail.com

3.   cool.nandy@gmail.com

4.   co.ol.nan.dy@gmail.com

As gmail ignores .’s in it’s username .

an alias made by mixture of various such alias is also an alias for your id.

like

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..
