    Here's a tip that I learned recently and i'm sure you guys will find it useful.

    Many of use create multiple emails for whatever purpose... (posting on classifieds, spam, etc.)

    We want them easy to remember so we make them similar different but add numbers at the end like:

    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    etc

    This is time consuming and most of these emails forward to one "main" account anyway. It's also impossible to keep track of how many unnecessary emails that we have.

    Now you don't have to do that anymore...

    Whenever you need a new email simply put a "+1" at the end of the same email.

    For example:

    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    etc

    Basically if you sent an email to [email protected], it will end up at [email protected]

    Websites consider these as different emails but they will all be forwarded to the original [email protected] email. I have not used it past +99 so i'm not sure where the capped number is.


    Go ahead and send at test email to yourself! :D

    This comes up from time to time here. It's very well known. You can actually put anything after the + and most well-written websites do not consider these multiple email addresses.

    It's a well known thing that actually is not GMail specific - it works with nearly all self hosted mail.

    This definitely will not work with GMail. This is because GMail actually allows you to have a period (or a dot) in your username/e-mail address.

    You can also use gmail to set filters to filter inbound traffic based on recipient. Therefore [email protected] could have a filter to automatically apply a label (which is kind of like a folder ) and be marked read, moved to spam, whatevs.

    Many of the larger websites are onto this trick already though and will view the email addy as a dupe.

    For the record, using sequential names is generally a bad idea anyways.

    Have you TESTED IT?


    I have and it works.

    Examples:

    "[email protected]"
    "[email protected]"
    "[email protected]"

    The above all will work.

    What my not work, is the ISP or what ever you are using the email address to sign up for something, may not accept these alter email addresses.

    Just a question:

    Does most mail servers ignore the "." before the"@" and everything after "+"?

    :confused:

    The dot trick can backfire cause some1 else could be using the real Richer.Jack addy. I think numbers work better.

    Using a dot in the name isn't bright unless you feel like giving someone else some email later on. If you want real use, you can do the + thing, but really...email addresses are sixteen cents a dozen (no really, i was going to say a dime, but they really are sixteen cents a dozen LOL).

    Don't hate me because I'm drunk, hate me because I'm beautiful :)

    Beware that if you are using same gmail address for multiple facebook account. Then if any of your facebook account is disabled, then all facebook account related to this email id is also disabled.

    I wouldn't, just due to the whole "if one gets screwed they all get screwed" idea (read: above). This trick isn't really helpful for anything blackhat, just generic forwarding in whitehat mode of nothing that could ever be banned, suspended, etc.

    Hey guys. I'm looking for a thread that I can't seem to find anymore that was about the +whatever trick and included a little program to mass create these for you. Can someone help me find this? I would really appreciate it.

    Hi, I make a lot of profiles on forums but I've reached the limit with the amout of gmail accounts. Would doing the + trick work well with this. Will the sites I'm registering to see the emails as different?
