Gmail tips and tricks

A nice little way to trick the email address uniqueness is to add some dots. That said, for Google Mail the following are all the same:

  • firstlast@gmail.com
  • first.last@gmail.com
  • first…last@gmail.com

Besides that, you can be a bit more specific, using adress+something@gmail.com format. So, say

  • firstlast+100@gmail.com
  • firstlast+holiday@gmail.com
  • first…last+donuts@gmail.com

are all gonna arrive to your firstlast@gmail.com inbox.
