If someone accidentally adds dots to your address when emailing you, you’ll still get that email. For example, if your email is “
email@example.com”, you own all dotted versions of your address:
In vice-versa, if your email already has a dot then you own the dotless version too.
You can add an alias to make virtually unlimited email addresses with just a single Gmail account. You can add a “+” symbol after your username, then add an alias just before the “@“ symbol. For example, you can use “
firstname.lastname@example.org” or “
email@example.com” for different needs. using aliases also allows you to filter responses and cut the clutter.
