We all agree that Gmail is the coolest mail service out here. I recently read from the Official Gmail Blog two more cool features of Gmail. To be honest, I never knew about those before.
- Suppose your gmail id is firstname.lastname@example.org, then you can aswell receive mails addressed to email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org or so. This is because the Gmail system just ignores any periods(.) in between your userid.
- And here is another nice one. Again suppose your gmail id is email@example.com. Suppose you are using this id for some official use such as ‘customer feedback’or somehing. So now you can append any other word after your gmail id after a ‘+’ sign. So you can use the mail id ‘firstname.lastname@example.org‘ or ‘email@example.com‘ or so. And if you want to forward to forward your mails addressed to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org‘ to another email id, if you need. You can configure this in the gmail settings > filters >
Is n’t it cool, checkout now.
