    First off, I'm not sure if there is a more appropriate board for this, so mods, feel free to move if necessary...

    OK, I would guess many of you know this trick, but as I was reading a thread where someone was creating multiple GMail accounts in order to sign up for continual trials of a product, I realized there are some out there who could benefit from this. There are several areas where you could use this to your benefit. Here's the trick:

    If you have a GMail account, adding a '.' in the account name will still allow the message to be delivered to the primary account. So for example, if you have the account yourname@gmail.com, sending an e-mail to y.ourname@gmail.com will still be delivered. So will y.o.urname@gmail.com - and on and on...

    Nothing earth shattering, but don't keep setting up new accounts if you can avoid it.

    if any one wants, i have a program that will convert your email say yourname at gmail dot com to as many different combinations using periods it can so for example

    y.ourname
    yo.urname
    your.name
    etc

    So if you hace a decently long name, you can have upto 1000000+ email address withiin no time with all emails going to your primary account..

    Yeah, I use this all the time to separate spam from important emails. You can have gmail filter in one of the variations straight to the trash
