Maybe this is not new for some of you, but I just found out the most amazing thing about Gmail: you can have infinite Gmail addresses based on your own Gmail address.
The technique is simple: add anything you want after your Gmail by adding a '+' sign and you'll receive it on your regular account.
Example: my Gmail is email@example.com. If I want to have my work mail organized in a certain way, I just tell my colleagues to send any mails to firstname.lastname@example.org. Simple, right?
Then, all you have to do is manage your labels on GMail and add filters* according to the addresses that you create, to have your mail all tidy up and organized.
Imagine the possibilities:
- I can receive all my work mail on email@example.com
- I can register on potential spammers sites with firstname.lastname@example.org
- I can show a girl how special she is by giving her my custom address antonio.lopes+just.for.you.girls-name
Any comments on the blog in general can be sent to:
email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
* To access your filters go to Settings->Filters and create a filter for messages addressed to a particular address and then add a label accordingly
